Sisters + Puppy, Nirvanavan Foundation, Rajasthan, India, 2016


As we finished our photography on this day last week, the sister to the left kept trying to inject this puppy into the photography. She would scatter with the doll to a girl in front of the camera and try to place it into her hands. Then she would run back, giggling all the way.

So when we finished for the morning, I walked over with the doll and placed it into her hands... then walked back with her and her sister for this portrait. She was so shy last year, a little less so this year. Her sister to the right is much less shy this year, an amazing difference in person.

So here they are, two of our students from Virat Nagar, our school having been adopted by Nirvanaand his team at Nirvanavan Foundation. It's a simple image, yet speaks volumes about why this work is so important to me and so many of you here on FB!
