Henna Hands in Varanasi, India

This photo was taken by Robin Fryday from Novato, California.

"The photo was taken in Varanasi, India, while I was there photographing children in a school/orphanage for a non-profit organization in the Bay Area called 'The Milagro Foundation.' I happened upon a wedding that was in progress and was invited in to take photos. A group of women were gathered in a room with the bride and were showing their decorated hands, which is traditional for Indian weddings.

I have traveled extensively throughout Peru, India, Bhutan, and Thailand to photograph people of other cultures. Much of my work focuses on children in civilizations, which are rapidly changing and vanishing."
