I took this photo on the day that I made portraits for all of the children in Boslantie, Suriname in November 2008. These children are some of the most positive and energetic who I have ever met. During my two years living in Boslantie, the children were are a constant source of motivation for me; they never failed to amaze me with their curiosity, cleverness, and of course, their every day smiles and love for those who were willing to help them. Pictured here is Stefano, a boy who never shied away from the camera and always loved to color pictures. He wears a locally common tri-color necklace, reflective of Suriname's country colors and also the large Rastafarian population in Suriname.
