Best Friends, Village near Kairana, Uttar Pradesh, India, 2017


Their portrait was made less than four weeks ago, and the next day we visited their madrasa once again to make more. For those of us involved in the new school, we present their tender portrait. We will finalize plans for the school with our hosts over the next few months, and put into motion what all of you and the community have supported for so long.

During our last visit the girls showed us yet another side of their personalities, one which was even more creative than anticipated. The 'spontaneous' sessions have become the highlights of our photography in these villages, as the girls line up with their best friends for photographs. They hold hands, they hug, they display traditional poses while also coming up with their own. It is a beautiful scene to witness, and I am honored to be provided the opportunity to do so.

To all of you, here is to the future!
