global travel shot: five girls and five emotions in yazd


One of my favorite travel images. Taken in Yazd, Central Iran in October 2007.

I was at the Ateshkadeh (Zoroastrian fire temple) in the new city when a group of five young girls placed themselves in front of me. Five girls, with five different personalities. Five different emotions. At the same place, same time, same age, validating the richness of human expression and thought.

Clockwise: The imp, the assured, the serious, the shy, the open laughter.
