Sorry, Chissler, I accidentally hit edit on yours! I didn't remove anything though
It actually is the intent of the image, Chissler.
This little girl is from the Darfur region of Sudan. Instead of pain and suffering, as in many images from the region, you see strength and courage,
amongst other things.
She is beautiful. She is strong.
The photographer who took this, Finbarr O'Reilly, has a penchant for capturing strength through portraiture, and has done so in many tragic African
landscapes. This remains one of my favorites, however, even before he told me the story behind it.
