Photo and caption by Baris Ahmet Yazici

"Sultan" is the name of the little kurdish girl in the photo who lives in east Turkey. She is a kurdish girl. Little shy and so natural. I met her in Mardin in east Turkey, she is from a poor family and like many others in that region she will probably marry with an old man in a few years. May be her innocent look might turn the eyes of the world to this problem: "child marriages".

Location: Mardin / South-East Turkey
