Woman Defined - An Online Photography Exhibit

~ Perseverance ~

perseverance

This photograph was taken at the Pushkar Camel Fair, an annual livestock and cultural exhibition that draws hundreds of thousands of visitors to a tiny town in Rajasthan, India. Through an interpreter, I was able to speak with this gorgeous, graceful fifteen year old single mother and was incredibly moved by her story of hardship and perseverance. Though extremely impoverished and forced to live a semi-nomadic life, her intense love for her young daughter and burning hope for a better future for them both was inspiring and unforgettable.

This photo was taken in rural South Africa 10 years after apartheid ended! We saw a group of older students walking along the road. This 17-year-old African woman embodies Pride, quiet strength & optimism for her future.

This photo represents how women are rooted. Rooted in their family, their cultural traditions, their matriarchy. I took this picture of the great grandmother and matriarch of an Italian family in their multi-generational home on a hillside high above Sorrento in . She even seems rooted in her chair next to the fireplace as she keeps company with the dinner guests and occasionally watches over the newest great-grand baby in the family.

These two little Chinese dancers were not afraid to approach my husband after a performance at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. Their personalities shone through their makeup and costumes and brought a smile to our faces.

When I asked this young mom in a Reykjavik, Iceland, shop for tips on where to buy their wonderful wool, we ended up talking about traditions. She had knitted this delightful outfit for her little girl. She told me Icelandic grandmothers knit a silk hood for each new grandchild which becomes a treasured keepsake.

This is a Bonda tribal woman in Orissa, India. Her ancestors were the indigenous peoples of India. I met her at a local market where she came to barter orchid liquor. Her tribe is matriarchal, and she is a proud land-owner.
