Scrambling playfully to be part of the image, this group of boys may express the elation of the 1958 election in Togo, or they may simply be excited to be photographed as they walked to or from school. Holding books, school bags, and large plastic containers, the boys respond directly to Webb and his camera with joyful and curious expressions, illuminating the complexities of the relationship between photographer and individual sitters.
