Young Refugee + Bathroom, Uttar Pradesh, India, November, 2013


Here a young woman walks by the toilet for her village. By most accounts woman are unable to use such a structure even, having to wait for the night to do what most of us take for granted at any time of the day/night. This image was made at a refugee camp located in Uttar Pradesh, hosted by an incredibly generous family. The people in this camp were removed from their villages on the basis of their faith, and in anticipation of the upcoming election season. According to many accounts, dozens were killed and many women were brutalized… such is the environment in which this young woman lives.
