One of Tataru’s favorite pictures is the first he snapped in the series. A shy mother called Wissam was a challenge to photograph because of her timidness.
According to MSF, Wissam lives in Beit Lahia, one of areas most affected by the war. She is the proud mother of three university students. (Photo courtesy: Ovidiu Tataru/MSF)
“There are young pretty girls to photograph, why photograph me?” Tataru recounted Wissam as saying. To which he replied saying: “Because you’re beautiful!”
