Jigme 8 & Sonam 18 mo, Ladakh, India by Phil Borges

Jigme 8 & Sonam 18 mo, Ladakh, India

Jigme and Sonam are sisters whose nomadic family had just come down from the Himalayan highlands to their 16,500 ft. winter camp on the Tibetan Plateau. When I gave Jigme a Polaroid of herself she looked at it, squealed and ran into her tent. I assumed that this was one of the only times she had seen herself since her family did not own a mirror.
