Rural schoolgirls of Eastern Anatolia

Three slightly-cropped selections from the book "Sweet Nothings," by photographer Vanessa Winship. Additional photos available at the photographer's website.
Photographer Vanessa Winship lived and worked in the area of Eastern Turkey for almost a decade an explosive region containing the borderlands of Iraq, Iran and Armenia. Struck by enduring images of rural schoolgirls wearing little blue dresses and their delicate status within politically loaded discussions over borders and identity, Winship systematically documented her encounter with them.
Via Reciprocity Failure.
