Photograph by @CristinaMittermeier // I was very honoured to represent @NatGeo at their #WomenofImpact event at the @cannes_lions International Festival of Creativity in collaboration with @facebook. Having the opportunity to meet, photograph, represent, mentor and empower women has been one of the greatest gifts of my career. As an ethnographic photographer, I get to visit some of the most remote places on the planet and on these travels, I continuously feel the kindness, the sisterhood and the generosity of women from all cultures and all walks of life. I photographed this Enga woman from the highlands of Papua New Guinea. Though her headdress was a prized possession, passed on from generation to generation, I chose to focus on her eyes, reminding us of our shared humanity. #FollowMe at @CristinaMittermeier to see more images from around the world.
