Kantamanto Market brims with activity on a Saturday morning. This is a second-hand goods “broni wawu” market. It is a good place to find quality items at affordable prices. A lot of brand new items in shops are cheap Chinese imitations but since most of the second-hand goods come from Europe and America, the quality is perceived to be better. And for the prices they sell, you can’t get a better deal anywhere else. “Broni Wawu” means “Dead white people’s stuff”.

A dambe boxer poses for a portrait before a match at Mile 12, in Lagos, Nigeria in February 2014. “Dambe” is a traditional form of boxing common among Nigeria’s Hausa people, originating in the north but found all over the country. The striking fist is wrapped with material after small cuts are made along the arm and special herbs are rubbed into the wound and amulets worn for increased strength. Originally seen as a rite of passage, most men now box for fame.

Beautiful Camilla, 8, followed us around the crowded Meshenti Market under the hot sun smiling for photos while ensuring we werent overcharged for oranges. When we gave her pens and a notebook she apologized that we spent any money on her. Her only request, a photo with her and her grandmother. Bahir dar, Ethiopia.

From Sarah Leen of National Geographic, guest editor for this week: “In my own former travels in Africa I was always so impressed by how competent children were to run small businesses. The light on this young girl’s face, the hands touching to exchange coins turns this simple moment into a beautiful portrait.” @roseleen @natgeo #kenya #nairobi #kibera #landscape #nofilter #thegreatdivide
