Haircut in Mali
PCV Audra Helser gives her boyfriend, PCV Ben Arnold, a haircut on the porch of the transit house in Koutiala, Mali. Both Helser and Arnold are from Ohio, but did not know each other until meeting in Peace Corps. Ben was in the group ahead of Audra's group.
I met Audra and Ben, who have since COS'ed and are now married and living in Chicago, while I was traveling around the world photographing Peace Corps volunteers. My photographs are compiled in a book titled, "Making Peace with the World, Photographs of Peace Corps Volunteers". It includes photographs I took of volunteers in 22 countries on five continents. The book is published by Other Places Publishing, a company founded by Christopher Beale who served as a Peace Corps volunteer in served in the Eastern Caribbean.
