  • 20. The Widows of Varanasi
  • 21. In India, hundreds of widows populate the city of Varanasi--most live in charity homes. Many are homeless. They are left in this holyHindu city after their husbands are cremated on the Ganges River. They exist in the shadows of daily life--going unnoticed--and are expected to devote the remainder of their lives to the memory of their husbands, without whom, according to their traditions, life loses meaning.

  • 26. Kashmir Earthquake
  • 27. Over 86,000 people died and 3 million people were left homeless by the earthquake that shook the Pakistani and Indian regions of Kashmir. Preoccupied by the news of other natural disasters, the international community was slow to respond to the 7.6 magnitude earthquake. Harsh winter conditions and mountain landslides hampered relief efforts in many areas. Survivors from remote villages hiked for days, carrying injured and dead family members to the Pakistani town of Balakot where helicopters eventually arrived to airlift people to better medical facilities.

  • 32. “ I love my job—whether I'm home in the US or abroad. But the main reason I do this is to spread empathy among our readers in the US. I want people here to have an interest and a connection to people from very different cultures, religions and geographies. Traveling abroad as a photojournalist allows me to do this.” -Andrea Bruce Woodall
