Photo of the Day: Sirens of Timket


  1. I wonder what is in the minds of these young women…they look complex…What are their lives really like? Like most women in 2/3rd world countries they are still dressed in traditional clothes but behind them, the young men and the men often are in casual Western clothes….Their heads so often covered, while their male counterparts are free…I find it so difficult to romanticize 2/3s world women anymore, now that I know so much more than I ever did about how they feel about their lives. Thre is a great BBC video (online) with interviews of Hamar women saying how their husbands would kill them if they ever knew they were speaking to the interviewer this way, but that they’re basically living as slaves, with no voice, no power, and no choice…lovely photo tho… xox linda
