At the age of 85, the tough years of living under one of the most repressive military juntas
in the world is revealed in the lines on her face. The lines on her face, the intensity of the
eyes and overall feel of the photograph hint at the life experience and wisdom that this
woman possesses.
生活在世界上最压抑的军政府的85 年来,艰苦的岁月在她脸上刻下了深深的痕迹。她脸上的线条,强有力的眼光和整体照片的感觉揭示了这个女人所拥有的经验和智慧。

Thought about putting this one up, but went with....

Out of all the photographs in this series, this woman is the epitome of natural beauty.
While working her shop she was also looking after her two children. She was very friendly,
but it took a long time for her to feel comfortable enough for her to get a photograph taken
of herself. When I was finally able to take a photograph, I took a single shot and she was a
natural talent in front of the camera, producing this striking image.

As the day draws to a close this woman shows high spirits despite working over ten hours
separating garbage in one of Manila’s many garbage dumps that also functions as a home
for hundreds of people. Her outgoing personality and welcoming demeanor is something
quite common amongst Filipino women.

尽管工作了十几个小时,分离垃圾,这个女人仍然显示兴致很高。 这个垃圾场是马尼拉的许多垃圾场之一,同时也是数百人的家园。她开朗的性格和欢迎的言行举止在菲律宾妇女中相当普遍。

This mother and daughter take a quick break from the mid-afternoon heat to observe the
activity in the neighbourhood. Their body language and strong personalities is what drew
me to take a photograph of them. They are able to exhibit a tough exterior while still being
beautiful women.

这母女两在烈日下小息片刻,来观察附近的事物。 她们的坚韧性格从她们的肢体语言上表现了出来。在强硬的外表她们是美丽的女人。

With many artists and their expressions being suppressed in Iran, this young woman
defies the authorities and continues to produce her art. Through this she is able to express
herself and the frustration she experiences as a woman living in Iran. Being strong and
confident is something that essential when trying to express yourself and your feelings

inside an oppressive regime.
在伊朗,许多艺术家被压制。但这个年轻女子违抗当局,继续制作她的艺术。她通过她的艺术来表达她作为一个女子,居住在伊朗所经历的挫折。当生活在一个受压迫的政权里,你想要试图表达自己的想法和你的感受, 坚韧的毅力和自信是必不可少的。
