A Photographer From Mozambique Shows People Who Do Not Know the Meaning of the Word “Sadness”

Bruno Pedro, a photographer and filmmaker from Portugal, had been traveling around Africa but fell in love with Mozambique. He made it his mission to show us what this country is all about — and it’s not just natural resources, animals, and landmarks — but it’s the way people live there. He proves this in his captured pictures which show the positive energy flowing from its people.

In an exclusive interview with Bright Side, Bruno commented that despite all that goes wrong, they (the people) always wear a smile and that’s what makes them special. He likes to walk around their communities, get to know them, and take photos. We want to show you some of his captured moments in this amazing country.
