Photos are not the best souvenirs…
Do not take photos of or film people by themselves or in villages without first obtaining permission.
It is strongly recommended that we refrain from taking photos of children without asking their or their parents’ permission. This will often be refused so do not insist.
Avoid promising to send pictures of people photographed unless we’re sure that we can keep that promise. Instant cameras (like Polaroid) can be useful.
Above all let us take the time to really meet people. Rather than just collect images.
