Girls hiding from camera

Photo and caption by Lena Konstantakou
School girls are hiding from the camera, in Pemba island, Africa. It is not right by religion, in Muslim African countries, to photograph woman and sometimes to photograph people in general. Very few times the girls are reacting in a playful way, but most of the times they just run away.
Location: Pemba island, Africa (an island forming part of the Zanzibar Archipelago)
