The world differs in a lot of ways dependent on geography (wow, so insightful...). For example, in India many girls are not given the opportunity to have an education because of an entire score of reasons; one of which being the societal standard.
In a small village in Northern India, while talking to village leaders about the education of their girls I was hit by the stereotype that women were less valued than men in this culture. Then I saw this girl, with the scar down her chest. In a village like this, the nearest doctor is days away, the nearest surgeon performing open-heart surgery, weeks. Let alone the expense.
In that moment I was faced with the contrast of societal values: yes this girl does not attend school because she must stay home to take care of the crops. However, because I am a westerner I wrongly interpreted that as her being devalued. The contrast of her sitting in profile dressed in Western clothing, with her elders sitting at her left, and the hint of her scar visible, just represents the shift of perspective I undertook there.
Theme: all of these photos were taken in a 40-person village that relies on their crop. Notice most subjects are in motion, from the women talking in the first photo, to the eating cow in the last.
