Here is last weeks theme: DREAM
Saiphon’s dream last night
Well not quite last night. I got struck by one of those funky tropical viruses and decided to take this picture from august – it was his last nights dream then. The birth of human being nr. 7.000.000.000 was soon to take place and german »Geolino« magazine wanted to portrait 7 children all over the world. It was called »Childrens Dreams«. I photographed 11 year old Saiphon, a passionate hunter and fisherman from the Lao countryside. I had to ask him a whole catalogue of questions such as: Who is your biggest hero? What is your biggest wish? What should change in your country? and: »what did you dream off last night?«
Here’s his answer: »I went to the forest to hunt when suddenly a giant elephant came angrily running towards me. I ran as fast as I could and from one moment to the other I was able to fly. I got away from the elephant but there where many evil spirits in the air. So I flew into a lake and dove all the way to my village but there were no people in the village. I got so scared that I woke up.«
