      Steve McCurry, Kayan women with neck rings, Myanmar(Burma), 1994 Schoonheid vraagt vreemde offers in elke cultuur. Zo heb ik ooit drie gaatjes in mijn oor laten prikken, heb ik de krullen uit mijn haar gestreken en elke vingernagel in een andere krul gelakt. Wat heb jij in de loop der jaren gedaan om je schoonheid te onderstrepen?

    Thomas Tham. It is amazing to me, that this child can smile with the turmoil around her. She picks up a wired conduit to be used as her new found toy. She smiles. She plays. She is a child. Not knowing the world around her disintegrates. Or maybe she does know. I look at her and I praise God for her smile and thank Him for my blessings. JP 9/16/2012
