In partnership with All About the Light

This was the first time this mother of three had ever seen the inside of her home at night. Previously, the only light the family had was a dirty kerosene lamp and the coals from a small fire in the corner. The walls were thick with soot. Paul, the eldest son, is the best student in his class. When photographer David Middleton handed him a Luci, Paul immediately brought David to his hut, hung it from the roof and pulled out his biology book. He wouldn’t even pause to look up for the photo.
