In the photographer's words: "These three female cousins are intensely praying for a baby for the cousin on the left. At 23 years old and married for several years in the Tibetan village, she was under intense pressure to produce a grandchild. Everyone in the village had a running concern about her fertility (not the husband's), and at this very instant, I caught a particularly intense moment while the three of them were seated on a bench bowed over in prayer in the household courtyard."
