Unscripted moments in time

In the rivers of south Bangladesh, a boy affectionally places his arm around his friend, just as I’m about to click. In a stick hut in the Danakil Depression, a boy gets tired of waiting for me to focus my camera and starts looking the other way while blowing a balloon. And in a colourful market high up in the Guge Mountains of southwest Ethiopia, a woman looks away and laughs at her friends who are giggling as she poses for a photo.
