Photo series shot in the slums of Kampala, Uganda during my down time while on location for a documentary film shoot. I was struck by how much care each of the kids showed one another at an after-school program. Even the smallest children managed to find someone smaller than themselves to look after. There was one little girl, in particular, who would carry around the baby above despite her diminutive size. I told her that she had a pretty dress (a far too big hand-me-down with a broken zipper on the back which made her constantly pull up one of the shoulders that slipped off repeatedly) and asked her if I could take her photo. Unlike the other kids who loved to have their photos taken, often hamming it up for the lens, she sat there with a depth and poise that transcended the slums, her slipping dress, and everyone around us.
