"Faces Of Youth" Shot In Rajasthan India

I recently was given the opportunity to travel to Rajasthan India in collaboration with Me To We. The purpose of the trip was to help construct a kitchen for a local school and to gain a better understanding of Indian culture. While there I meet the most beautiful children inside and out and was shocked by the unconditional love they had for life. However, I also saw women and men who had been beaten down by labor, extortion, and lack of opportunity. With the children permission, I tried to capture the magic and innocence they held, before the inevitability of their poor circumstances might hinder it.
