Student, Girls Bridge School, Rajasthan, India
This was our first meeting and it took place as the sun set behind the mountains. We arrived and were taken to the roof of the school supported by Humana People to People India. The sun was setting quickly and we made the best of it by moving a bench to the far corner of the roof where the remnants of light happened to be. With the help of the women, the girls sat down one by one for their portraits. They had only a minute to absorb the chaotic situation yet were able to present themselves so naturally. The girls in this village have an incredible confidence, and she is one example. She looks through the lens rather than at it, and this affected me deeply at the moment of exposure. Since this portrait she has grown up, married and started her own family. Our hope is that her children will have the chance at an education that she experienced so briefly in her young life.
