“Hi Petero,

I’ve titled the photo series: Anonymity of the Rural from a poem I wrote following the photos. I can’t really clarify the title of the images other than that they are given by what comes to mind and importantly what I feel. I always feel like I’m physically taken right back to my grann Khourtoum’s village Tô.
