The African Gioconda

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Rafael Belincanta

She was cooking when I arrived. She was so shy but she doesn't say no when I asked her if I could take a photo. Since then, her eyes are trying to say something that I just can't realize because in that moment I was bewitched.

Location: USA River, Arusha, Tanzania
