How the Photo was Taken

This photo was taken on an Olympus 0m10 film camera using Ilford fp4. the photo was developed by my local Lomography lab in London. the photo is unedited as i love the look film gives and want to keep it as true as possible.

Photo Location

I took this photo at a school in Thanthwe, Malawi. it was at the start of August and we were helping build a new school building for the 700 children. This photo was taken one evening when we had gone back into one of the classrooms we were sleeping in but all the children were still out playing by the school. This photo was one of my favourites as the I felt like i captured the true feeling of the child through the window of their school.
