Anuja and Her Mother

Anuja, a 20-year-old girl from Kathmandu Valley, Nepal, has her mother help her put on a sari, a typical female garment, before attending a wedding ceremony in the city. In Nepal, most marriages are arranged between members of the same caste, but love marriages are becoming more popular every day, especially in urban areas.

This photo is a finalist in the People category of our 16th Annual Photo Contest. See all 60 finalists here.
