The Performer

I love photographing young children. You can always bank on them to give you an unexpected opportunity. This moment was captured during a performance in a popular neighbourhood full of restaurants. It was a semi-formal event. The stage was a makeshift affair. People took a break from their plates laden with delicacies to applaud various performances. But not this child. She decided to walk straight up to the violinist and watch her with a mesmerised expression.
