“I took this photo in Muqam Shah Wali Village in Northern Kashmir. I had just finished photographing a family in their home, and as I was leaving, these children gathered in the window in curiosity. The small one room school was connected to the family’s home and served all the children in the village. Kashmir has been a flashpoint for over 70 years. It is a place often associated with conflict, heartache, and war. Turning the camera toward the children, I wondered if they would know a more peaceful future.”
