In a country where photography is basically illegal without permits, which are as good as impossible to get, portraits were slightly quicker than usual! Heavy military and police presence, all of whom carry machine guns, aren't to be messed with. One police officer told me that I can look with my eyes and take home memories, it's as simple as that. Despite this with my local fixer Sebastien at my side most of the time we avoided too much attention and moved on quickly. There's so much more to be shot here though. . . . next time.
