The Question Forever Asked
I took this photo while volunteering earlier this year in Suriname, a Dutch speaking country in South America.
A family I had met asked me to take some pictures of their Aunt who was ill, or so I thought. Lost in translation was the fact that she had already past on, and they wanted me to take photos of the funeral ceremony, and the cremation that followed. I didn’t realize the reality of the situation until I saw the hearse go past at an intersection, and the family member who was driving said, “There she is…”
Looking at the child in the photo, I can’t help but wonder, is he asking himself, “What is the meaning of life?”
