African Rainforest & Pygmy Peoples
Baka girl with mortar and pestle at the door of a leaf hut (Baka Pygmies, Cameroon).
"And at that moment the women around the fire, the women pounding at the mortars, the people in the community hut and the man with the machete all turn to look at us... Coming in from the forest you have the impression of a place of protection. Safe. The unexpected feeling that you have come home."
