A life revealed

I still remember when I first lay my eyes upon these images. The first photograph blew me away, appearing as the cover of the June 1985 National Geographic. The photographer, Steve McCurry, found the woman again in 2002, when the second image was taken. I don't think I have ever witnessed a more powerful story within two simple portraits.
