The bride, interviewed
The bride. This portrait was taken around noon, before the arrival of the groom's party. My Collegue was interviewing her about how she felt about the wedding. Shy looking, looked to me 17, real age age 20. She confirmed it was an arranged marriage, but said she'd met her future husband a few times, he was good looking, same age as her and seemed a very kind man. She liked him. She was initially a bit uneasy about my camera, but after a while seemed to relax, and started to look straight into the lens. This in stark contrast to the following day, when she consistently looked down.
