SANA'A, May 23 ) The German House organized an exhibition on Sunday about Yemeni children as depicted by the camera lens of Dr. Stefan Buchwald, deputy head of mission at the German Embassy in Sana'a. The exhibition partly reflects and records the daily life of Yemeni children and somewhat mirrors their sufferings.

Over his two and half years of stay in Yemen, Buchwald traveled a lot across the country and took photos of both Yemeni people and landscapes; however, his current exhibition was just confined to showing different faces of Yemeni children and from different areas he passed by.

Buchwald, who is due to leave Yemen by the coming August, indicated that he has visited most Yemeni areas and districts over an extended period of over two years; wherein his camera took photos of naive and simple children in the width and the length of the country. He added that he was chanted by the simplicity and goodness of Yemeni people, particularly children who used to come to him asking for a “photo””.
