In tribute to the resilient souls that bear fragile exteriors yet possess an unwavering strength within, I extend my thoughts to those with indomitable wills that triumph over fear.
This image is dedicated to the remarkable and extraordinary girls and women of Belarus, who endure beatings, humiliations, rapes, and unjust incarcerations for embodying beauty, character, and the pursuit of truth. Despite these hardships, they persistently hold onto flowers each day, boldly gazing into the future with radiant smiles – a weapon impossible to conquer!
I express my gratitude for their courageous beauty, bravery, and boundless love! It fills me with joy to stand alongside them and witness their lively, radiant countenances!
