Woman Defined - An Online Photography Exhibit

A Maasai mama proudly displays all the beaded jewelry she made. With the help of organizations like We.org, women in Kenya are using their beading skills to make a living wage and help them raise their families and communities out of poverty.

This fair maiden hails from the Jaunsari tribe based in the foothills of the Great Himalayas. The tribe has remained rooted to their historical roots and have shunned modern day living. The girl was photographed in Lakhamandal - a temple town, with several ancient folklores woven around it. However, today I see hope for her future because this area which has been so entrenched in its past and glorified history now has connectivity, exposure to advancement, schools and hopefully wider choices for profession.

This photo was taken in a village near Mombasa, Kenya. This woman is an environmental activist and had faced threats to her life when she took on a major corporation and got them to clean up massive pollution in a poor village. She gives the voiceless a voice and puts her life on the line.

I took this photograph in Varanasi, India, at a place called the Jolly Music House. Here, I saw Kathak, a classic Northern Indian style of performance blending music, dance and storytelling. I was enchanted by this female dancer, who moved gracefully, yet quickly -- so fast that at times she looked like a blur. Each move was done with intention and poise, despite the energy, devotion and hard work I'm sure it took to perform. While I certainly think womanhood is more than grace, I think this photograph and the story behind it portrays this characteristic perfectly.

~ Grandmother ~

grandmother

A highlight of my tour of Japan was a visit to a Japanese home. The hosts I was assigned to were the grandparents of a little girl that lived with them. Our visit was very formal as we drank tea and learned about the language. Next came a flower arranging demonstration along with a look through their family album. Then, their granddaughter awoke from her nap and the mood of the visit changed. This little girl came into the room with a friendly outgoing smile and grandma melted. Gone was her formality as we watched her interact with the child. Grandmothering is a treasured stage of a woman's life as she adds her wisdom and experience to her grandchildrens' upbringing.
