The New Yorker’s Photo Booth blog has published new work from Reportage contributor Diana Markosian about life and conflict in Kachin State, Burma. See the feature here.
This photo taken on April 16, 2014 shows an ethnic Kayan woman wearing traditional clothes and bronze rings around her neck while holding a child in Panpet village, Demoso township in Kayah state, eastern Myanmar. Some ethnic Kayan women, also known as Padaung, begin wearing the bronze rings on their neck and legs from a young age. Usually they start wearing six to ten rings when they are five to ten-years-old and then they put on one more ring a year for years after then. (Ye Aung Thu/AFP/Getty Images)
