Girl + Student, Nirvanavan Foundation, Near Alwar, Rajasthan, November 4, 2009

This young Indian princess levitates above the lens of the camera. In one effortless expression she presents herself as without equal, a sister to those in my portfolio and one who will one day reach her goals regardless of the considerable difficulties placed in front of her.

Imagine ourselves placed in front of a camera as we are going about our day. Would we be able to present ourselves so honestly, without reservation? Would we be able to hold the gaze of the viewers in this manner?

This is why I admire her and the others in my portfolio, and the viewers who give them the time to tell their stories.
