‘Nisha in a cornfield' © Mirella Lukens, Netherlands, Commended, Open Culture, and Winner, Netherlands National Award, 2018 Sony World Photography Awards. In the photo, you can see Nisha, a 15-year-old Hindu girl, dressed and styled according to modern Indian culture. She wore, among other things, a head ornament and traditional ‘mehendi' (red henna) on her hands. The photo was made last year on a warm summer morning in July. The location is a cornfield in our hometown Gasselternijveen (Drenthe). It was cloudy that morning, but the sun had enough power to provide a silhouette on the white canvas.
