‘Makasutu-mecca in the forest‘
multi-award-winning black and white portraits by Jason Florio
‘With little command of the local language, I could only but ask my subjects to stand and look directly into the lens. With little direction on my part, I found that the subjects in front of the camera would become silently quizzical of themselves and how they wanted to be portrayed. I returned every year to Makasutu, up until 2010…’ Jason Florio
