Happy International Women’s Day!
This is one of our photos that will be featured in the Planet Her photo exhibition that we (Uncornered Market) are co-hosting along with @gadventures and @lonelyplanet all this week in Berlin (March 8-13). In addition to showcasing photographs and vignettes of women drawn from our work and travels from Ethiopia to Tajikistan, Planet Her is intended to spur conversation regarding the potential of the tourism industry to create opportunities for local women that can aid access to education and financial independence.
I took “Political Rally” in Tupiza, Bolivia during a gathering in support of Evo Morales prior to a coming presidential election. I was struck by this woman — her energy, spirit, and expression. We had the fortunate timing to stumble upon the rally the day after we returned from our visit to the nearby high desert and salt flats of Salar de Uyuni.
