Post A few fantastic shots from around the world
Just thought I would share these fab images from the worlds press which are very thought provoking indeed.

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.
