Little boy hold a birdcage

Birdcage Boy

This is another shot taken in Regalo de Dios near Medellin, Colombia. A woman invited me into the little shack that she rents from an elderly man for $20USD/month. She introduced me to 5 children who she supports on little to no income. The entire family sleeps on one dilapidated bed, they had no electricity, and they could barely afford one meal per day. The little boy and girl in this photo are the youngest of the children. When I asked to take a photo, the little boy picked up his birdcage and posed with it. The bird was the only one thing that he could call his own.
