A deaf girl expressing the word “friendship” through Indian sign language. She was attending a school run by an NGO in Dharavi, one of the largest slums in the world, located in Mumbai, India.
Without a voice to express yourself, without money to have a decent living, life could seem hopeless. But education always gives hope and this Indian girl was really enjoying her time in school! Now, through sign language and writing she really has a voice.
I took this photo 6 months ago. Now I'm in Berlin, Germany with The Atlas of Beauty.
