Young Meets Old


The National Immunization Days (NID) campaign is held every year in Namibia. One of my responsibilities during the campaign was to document the campaign in my town through photos which would then be included in the official report. After taking all of the photos, I went back through to pick out the best and discovered this gem.

 

The old woman is a volunteer who was administering our Vitamin A Supplement, the little girl was now on to her second oral vaccine (first being Polio) and clearly had become accustomed to how the process went. The contrast between young and old and the way their eyes met created such a compelling image.
