Fatouma, Bedouin, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon
She lives but a few minutes from the city, yet seems to exist in another reality. As the sun rises she wakes up to tend to the sheep, and does the same as the sun sets. In between she helps her mother with chores around the house, and all of this for a girl of less than seven years. Next to the sheep she seems so small, so vulnerable... that is until she has a job to do and directs the sheep. There is a strength that is unmistakable, a confidence that allows her to exist within her difficult circumstances.
