Photo and words by @jessartes // “From my hometown of Lubango, located in the interior of Angola, I embarked on a 900km journey to the capital, Luanda. Along the way, I explored the region of Sumbe, where I took this photograph on the Kikombo river. This area is full of an immeasurable amount of natural beauty, but what captivated me most is the life and energy of the community that lives off of the agriculture from the river banks. I spent all afternoon getting to know the locals, forging a connection, and not worrying about my camera. I listened to their stories and built a level of affinity that allowed them to return to their activities naturally, allowing me to capture moments candidly. Every time I look at this photo, I’m reminded of the struggle, resilience, and strength of African women and an Angolan proverb that resonated with me on my journey: ‘If you go, don’t put out the fire. Those who stay, warm up.'”
