This particular ethnic group of people live in an ancient town from the built in the sixth century. The elders care for the grandchildren, while the parents are busy doing the chores of their daily lives. Some of the elders have very little in the way of furniture in their homes, while others have large collections of objects including some with televisions.

I've been given the opportunity to travel the world and document some wonderful moments. I especially love to photograph, both children and elders of a community. The young children represent the joys and hardships of their existence in the particular village they live in. The older people are identified by the wisdom they accumulated by their years in existence. They are the adhesive with in the family unit.
