African Rainforest & Pygmy Peoples
BaKoya woman with painted face (Bakoya Pygmies, Gabon).
"The crossroads where the road to the sawmill begins. During the day you find the traders' shops and Bantu women making manioc porridge to serve to truck drivers and passing workers. At night you find the truck drivers and passing workers having sex in the huts. Bantu and Pygmy women are the object of the sexual attentions of the office workers from the sawmill, who also pass on viruses that gradually infect the women's villages..."
