Flaka

Flaka, how she likes to be called, which means skinny in Spanish, is an incredible girl I met in Dominican Republic in the orphanage of San Pedro where I spent the last two weeks of June 2017. Not only she is stunningly beautiful, she is clever, funny, and truly amazing. With the help of NPH, the non-profit organisation I worked with, and all the wonderful people who "sponsor" her—help her with long-distance adoptions—she just graduated and looks forward to start university.
Flaka is in her year of service, something the orphanage does in order to teach the kids they always have to be grateful for what they've received. Basically, when you're done with you journey you have to work in the orphanage for one year, so that you can "repay" them for what they've given you. You can work in the garden, in the kitchen, in the bakery, in the house of the volunteers and so on. She works in the house of the volunteers, that's how I got to know her. She is truly a fantastic person and I am grateful I had the change to meet her.
These portraits were shot in the garden of the orphanage, with only natural light. Even if she doesn't act like it, she has never been photographed before. She looks like a model but she's just an orphan with incredible expressive eyes.
