Beautiful is an extraordinary photography book featuring women in India who have been victims of burning. The causes of their burns include accidents, suicide attempts, and most prominently, domestic violence. A vision of Wellspring International, the humanitarian arm of RZIM, the endeavor of this book was to capture each of the women in a way that honored them. Often, when an NGO takes photos of the people and places they labor to help, the unspoken goal is to show what has been lost. What sets this project apart is that instead of focusing on what was lost, we set out to capture what powerfully remains.
With gorgeous photography by our commissioned artist, Elizabeth Jones, and rich quotes interwoven through the work, each reader will encounter a truth. A face that is real - a face that bravely speaks to an inward story, is beautiful. The title itself carries the Devanagari script for the Hindi word khoobsurat, an exquisitely rich word that goes even beyond appearance and speaks to the countenance of someone truly lovely. These women are real. They are survivors. They are courageous. They are beautiful.
All RZIM proceeds from the sale of the book will go towards construction of a fully operational surgical burn center in India.
Beautiful is a hard cover, 10x12 coffee table book with 124 pages.
