He catches things no one wants to see. Love it.

diane said...

Phew, these are powerful images.

Haute World said...

Very beautiful. I like how 'real' they are and can both fascinate or disturb the viewer. A wonderful way of capturing moments in a part of the world others might never see.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Impressive pictures! Some are so beautiful you nearly forget the underlying social and environmental problems shown. Very strong!

Cheryl said...

These photos are amazing! The colors are so vivid, and the subject matter is so fascinating. I feel so sheltered sometimes because I can't imaging living some place like this. It is hard to comprehend when you've been a city girl since birth.


Thank you for the Congrats =) I am elated! I will have time to save up some $$ and hopefully find a perm position somewhere. *dances*

Char said...

that last shot is just powerful as hell as it illustrates how very different of a world it is. but the boy (girl?) peeking from behind the green is my favorite.

Style Porn said...

Wow, these are deeply moving images. I cant believe that dude has a hyena on a chain!! That thing could snap his skull like a walnut...

Life With Dogs said...

Superb perspectives...

Caroline said...

I agree with Char 100%. Love face peeking out of the green. And the last shot...whoa! Powerful stuff!

Moomby said...

osodi does a great job in capturing the art and beauty out of hardships.

Asylum Dolly said...

I've seen that hyena one before. Crazy!
I love number 11. It is beautiful, if a bit sad.

Ela said...

He's amazing!

Oh and on the side, I would love the rings that lady is wearing!

TERI REES WANG said...

Dark and dirty-raw and rainbow bright!

The top and the last, I think are the strongest.

...is that a Hyena on a leash..?!

Layla said...

Love 'em!!
