"In this exhibition, Sara Hylton brings together three bodies of work–“Women of God,” “Girls’ Education in South Sudan,” and “Nobody Listened”–each of which offers some of the too-often-unheard stories of girls from around the world. The collection “Women of God” looks at the Dalit, or “untouchable” caste of South Asia; “Girls’ Education in South Sudan” is framed by the aftermath of years of fierce fighting in the new country of South Sudan; and “Nobody Listened” explores the murdered and missing indigenous women of Saskatchewan."

Hi Visura community, I'm very honored and excited to announce that I will be joining Magnum Foundation as a fellow to work on an under-reported issue around New York City. Stay tuned for project updates.
I arrived to Nepal four days ago to document the aftermath of the earthquake. Nepal has had a special place in my heart since I first visited in 2012, and many of my friends and friends of friends have been affected by the disaster. I'm not sure what I expected to encounter, one can never be prepared for the devastation of a natural disaster, but the country is clearly struggling after two earthquakes, and still daily tremors. Fear, trauma, and tension is widespread. The Nepali people are incredibly strong and resilient, and have responded to their unfortunate fate with amazing fortitude - distributing relief materials on their own accord, sharing their homes with others who need shelter, and doing what they can to move on as the government fails to respond appropriately. It is clear while being on the ground that the most effective way to support their rebuilding process is to donate to local organizations who are transparent and reputable. There are two such operations that I have continually come across who are doing amazing work. Please, if you can, support these people as they try to rebuild their lives and culture.
Thanks to Adriana and Graham at Fotovisura, I have received a scholarship to participate in an editing workshop with the amazing Whitney Johnson from National Geographic. Thanks for the support Fotovisura.
My friend Rashmi Thapa, a Nepalese working in the humanitarian field, has organized a relief effort for victims of the earthquake with 100 percent of donations going to aid victims. Please give whatever you can to help the people of Nepal rebuild their lives. Give large friends, our resources are greatly needed.
I will be taking over Smithsonian's instagram account from Saturday Feb. 7 for a week. I will be posting images from my ongoing project, Holy Town, based in Uttar Pradesh, India. Please join me @smithsonianmagazine as I share my journey.
