Meet Glora Etim

Sometimes I take pictures of people when they are not aware. This is the best because that’s when they show true emotions, natural facial expressions. I usually wait at the junction of my street for about 10 minutes to catch a cab to the high school I teach at and during that time I watch these young children going to school with their big dreams and bright faces. I watch the little ones scream and cry and tug at their mothers when their school buses arrive. I love to watch this show everyday and it inspired me to begin a series – the school children series.  I take photographs of children I come across on their way to school. Many a time a speak to them. Some of them dream of becoming pilots and astronauts and I think that I really beautiful.
