About this image

Very special moment. I had had three miscarriages that year. Seeing this mother breastfeed in the middle of the Borneo jungle made me stop in my tracks. I smiled at her. I took a picture and showed it to her. Perhaps she had seen the deep sadness in me. One of my most treasured travelling moments, connections.
