Heavy Lifting/Shoulders of Strength

Cannon EOS-1D X
I am impressed by the amount of work little girls do in Africa. Five year-old girls do chores that would only fall on the shoulders of fifteen year-olds in the United States. Girls start carrying their younger siblings while they are still quite young; it is remarkable how much weight they are able to carry. But it is a reflection of the types of family burdens these children must bear. Many of them have no parents and these children grow up faster than most. This moment captures a young girl, carrying her younger brother, on her way to the market to beg for food and money.
