Goddess Dressing

Photograph by Stephanie Sinclair, National Geographic

In Nepal’s Kathmandu Valley, young Newari girls called kumaris are worshipped as living goddesses. Like other kumaris, Dangol, pictured here, wears special makeup for festivals. But it’s more than makeup that changes on these occasions. Former kumaris have described feeling bigger and stronger and said that heat radiates from their foreheads.

Martin Schoeller’s new book, Portraits, a 15-year retrospective of his modern portrait photography, is further evidence of the long-lasting power of the photographic portrait that began 175 years ago.

Funny Face

Photograph by Brian Callaway, National Geographic Your Shot

“The gaye holud is a traditional Bengali wedding ceremony in which the bride and groom are presented with fish dressed as the couple,” writes Your Shot member Brian Callaway, who captured this photo in the town of Mamallapuram, on the east coast of India. “Amit and Sofi have an amazing sense of humor and started playing and posing with the fish after their gaye holud. It didn’t take too long before I saw that if they held the fish up to their faces, the eyes of the fish would match their own. For me, the photo perfectly captures this cultural part of their wedding, their fun/spontaneous personalities, and, more importantly, how much fun they were having. It’s also their favorite photo.”
