Somalia ~ February 25

Willmar, Minnesota

"Celebration of Cultures" A World Culture Fair is held bi-annually in Willmar, Minnesota to honor the cultures of the population of Willmar and the surrounding area. Suprisingly West-Central Minnesota is composed of a wide variety of folks from all over the world. Countries represented include Argentina, Boliva, Cameroon, Chile, Dakota Nation, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Ireland, Leach Lake Band of Ojibwa, Mexico, Norway, Panama, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Philippines, Russia, Scotland, Senegal, Somalia, Sweden and Wales. (Curiously absent in representation was China and Germany as we have a lot of folks from both.) This young lady was representing folks in the Willmar area originally from Somalia.

I've a confession to make, few years back - in 2005 to specific - i saw this photo and I posted it in my Flickr account, because I was collecting photos of Somalia and Somalis. The photo had the highest number of views in my collection until I took it down few months ago. I didn't know who took the photo and I just came across it now on this website. it's a brilliant shot.

Apologies of,

Abdurahman (you won't find it there :)

Great DOF and nice catch with her coming accross the board there, helps to 'stand' her out from the crowd. Lots of warm tones to this too.

Nice shot and what a great event. What a relief to see people appreciated for what they are instead of the rabid anti-immigration phobia that seems to prevalent.
