The Story
'This photograph was made during my volunteer work with an aid association in Ngorongoro Tanzania. I was attending a Masai tribe ceremony in Aljanemalok village. After the ceremony, I was in shut with the Masai Chief sharing some food when I saw this boy standing in the rain almost as if he was hypnotised. I'm still not sure if his expression was about food or about the white man in the village. The Chief would not let me share my food with the kid saying that kids need to show respect to the older ones. In any event, I grabbed my camera and took this shot'

Goran wins AU$5000 cash, an inscribed FiPP 2013 medallion anda AU$250 Memento voucher.
