Thank you for sharing this, Laura. So important to remember and so often forgotten. To take the time to love, honour and respect those we share our lives with, however briefly, brings us closer to them and to life and both our memories, our lives and our photographs will be the richer for it.
What the poor need most is not pity but love. They need to feel respect for their human dignity, which is neither less nor different from the dignity of any other human being.
Khadisara (age 13 in this image) is NOT just a girl living in poverty. She is a helpful girl who cares deeply for her mother and does all she can to support her younger sisters. She is a girl that did not want to pose with a cheesy smile. It wasn’t ‘her’. She is a girl that wanted to share her story. (Taken in 2012 for All We Can in Nepal)
