Mother and Child (Dustin Barter)

Displaced by the conflict in Kachin, the mother and child in this photo portray a beautiful intimacy despite the situation. For me, it gives a sense of optimism that despite war, their bond remains strong, but its impossible to sugarcoat the reality that many of these bonds are broken in Kachin and the situation is increasingly dire. The photo reinvigorated my desire to capture more documentary style photography, which is often missing in NGO photography.
