KINSHASA, DRC - NOVEMBER 3: Esther Yandakwa, a 13-year old street child holds an image that I took of her when she was 9 years old on the streets of Kinshasa, DRC. Four years later she still lives in a similar situation. She has lived on the streets since she was 6-7 years old and is dependent on prostitution to survive. She uses drugs and lives with a group of other homeless people in central Kinshasa. Thousands of children live on the streets of Kinshasa. Esther has been in and out orphanages or but she is only happy living in the mean streets of Kinshasa.
