Stephanie Sinclair of the U.S. has won the first prize Contemporary Issues Stories with the series "Child brides: Too young to wed", with pictures taken in the mountains of Yemen.
my parents both hail from villages in Yemen. I went to see a few years back and the village itself is built on mountainous terrain like this. Terraced slopes and the background is uncanny similar. No electricity to it still . I read about a girl of 6 sold off for marriage she was one of the few lucky ones saved by outside charity working there. Her story was very distressing.
