About this Item

2nd edition (originally self-published in 1997). Oblong 4to gilt-decorated cloth. Unpaginated (52pp). Signed & dated by Kabana shortly after publication. An incredibly beautiful book of photos & text by the author, who visited the country in 1997. Most of the photos are profoundly human & expressive photos of children. A little girl helped Kabana as she traveled around "small tribal habitats around the village of Marovoay. We did not understand each other's languages, but we talked with our eyes." Fine, like new in dj. Bookseller Inventory # 5019007

About this title

Synopsis:

The children in Madagascar rejoice in life's natural gifts--singing, working in the fields, helping their parents, and playing with lizards. Divided into three sections: "We Live!", "We Grow!" and "We Feel!", Torina's World:A Child's Life in Madagascar offers a glimpse into daily life in a Malagasy village, and encourages children in Western cultures to examine and reflect on life in a developing country. Ten years ago, author and photographer Joni Kabana spent a month in Madagascar. Her intention was to bring back images for her children showing how other children live. Torina, an eight-year-old Malagasy girl, acted as Joni's guide into this world. Back home, Joni's nine-year-old son, Benjamin Opsahl, helped edit the images and added simple, yet profound text that will engage readers across the world. Torina is now eighteen, still living with her parents and six brothers. She would like to further her education, but is hindered by a lack of resources, thus a portion of the proceeds from book sales will provide funding for her education as well other educational activities in Madagascar. To learn more about her life in Madagascar and fundraising efforts visit www.torinasworld.com

About the Author:

After years as a technology executive, Joni Kanbana returned to her childhood passion of photography. She is now a highly respected and award winning Pacific Northwest commercial and portrait photographer. Her images of street children, cancer patients, and the "misunderstood," are hauntingly provocative.
