A Fine Portrait

When he made this photo, Your Shot member Hassan Altaif was an invited guest in this woman’s home in the mountainous region of Ladakh, India. Ladakh borders Tibet, and many Ladakhis practice Tibetan Buddhism and live according to generations-old traditions. “She is home alone. Her husband died,” Altaif writes. “[In this photo,] she was wearing the traditional clothes of [her] original country. [Her house] is almost 300 years old.”

Altaif's shot was recently featured in the Daily Dozen.
