Flames of Peace


The dry season is savanna-burning time. These kids, in the village of Nkoka in southern Gabon, playing at being daredevils, take turns leaping over the flames in their flip-flops and tattered clothing. When they see me take out my camera to capture the scene, they run toward me, and one of the boys raises his hand in a salute to Peace.
