Work // Child Soldiers in Yemen

10th March 2018

Package for CNN International on a group of children who are on a rehabilitation program, after they were used as child soldiers by Houthi rebels.

The package was shot in an evening of failing light in a school within Marib city; it had already been a very long day and the lack of light started to make things exceptionally difficult, particularly in terms of picture continuity. The package was shot on a Sony FS5 with a 24-105mm Canon L series lens, with a metabones speedbooster which proved itself to be mightily temperamental throughout the whole trip. I was saved by a couple of faster primes, which I had holstered in my chest rig.
