Sugar Daddy. Social documentary project. Part of ’75 Countries’ project. Lilongwe, Malawi. February 3, 2002

The “Sugar Daddy” Culture corrupts parts of Africa and can spread HIV/Aids. A very young girl and an older man. Ostensibly, it is a smiling relationship. But it is one of dominance. The man grasps the girl’s hand and keeps her in place. Her look is uncertain, her body slightly twisted away.

The image was used by the Guttmacher Institute, in 2005, to head an article on the subject.
