The Harmony of a Peaceful People

Gabriel Tizón, Spain

Daily photographs taken in small villages in Guinea Bissau, a country that suffered a terrible war and numerous coups in recent decades, leaving its population in a situation with few basic resources like electricity or water.

Some people emphasize that living with few resources does not mean not being happy. They are against a new conflict, in favour of peace, and they show it in their lifestyle, simple but with a lot of energy and a desire to enjoy life .

A town that is an example of how happiness is possible on little, sharing and enjoying what surrounds them, based essentially on the resources offered by the nature in which they live, where children can be observed to play and have fun without Western technology. A natural harmony in a natural environment, as if it were a lesson to humans that when we have little we enjoy each other more.
