It’s Eritrean Independence Day today. We left Eritrea when we were very young, we feel a strong connection to the culture through the thriving Eritrean community in the UK. There are so many events, celebrations, weddings, parties going on. Eritreans as a people are hardworking, we respect our elders and have a strong sense of social responsibility. Today’s shoot is a celebration of that with our beautiful family.
