b&w twelveÆ’(sager).jpgBhaktapur, Nepal, 2004

The boy in this photograph seems to be looking off into the future, but at the same time, something about his expression feels confused and vulnerable.

What struck me about his sad, abject, distant look is how unfair it is to start off life so behind the curve.

There’s so much inequality around the world. When it’s kids who are facing the inequality, it seems particularly unfair. It makes me angry when I see kids trying to cope with such an unleveled playing field.
