Photo by @amivitale. A young child touches the trunk of his family's #elephant in #Rajasthan, #India. India was the first place that elephants were trained for domestic purposes. They were once used in the military and for heavy lifting in industry. Today, these domesticated elephants are mainly used for tourism. They can not be put back into the wild. @thephotosociety @panospictures @natgeocreative #photojournalism #amivitale #journalism #onassignment #nikon #nikonambassador #nofilter #latergram

March 16, 2014 "Legal Alien" Sigh, "What makes me a woman?" she repeated. She looked to her left as if she was looking towards the beaches of Zanzibar. Muonja Simba is ready to reclaim that part of her that has been dormant for over 16 years. "I have been here since I was 15 years old. I grew up into an adult feeling incomplete and lonely here. I grew up here without my mother and grandmother." For sixteen years, Muonja has lived in the United States on a steady diet of calling cards; "four to five times a week sometimes, feeding on the culture I get from my mother," she chimed in. Her face lights up when she talks about her mother and her home Da-es-Salaam, in Tanzania. "Love -- I miss the love of my family. I miss the love that comes from the women in my family. I was named after my great grand mother, it's spiritual, I carry her, she lives with me. It how I relate, culturally, physically, emotionally, whatever she left behind is what I give to people. Whenever I am in doubt I feel her spirit. She instilled in me the idea that it's more about giving than receiving. I feel the pressure of being in America like this. It only leaves me when I think of home. My mother is this graceful woman, gentle, and feminine. My mother was the matriarch at home, she organized our family while my dad watched us grow. The respect that my mom got from my father was the definition of love. I don't think I will see or feel that outside of what I saw between my mother and my dad. They taught me this way of being. She taught me about my brain, body and being That is home to me. That is the definition of woman to me. There was no malice in my home. Nobody had a place but we were grounded by our culture, it felt unbreakable." Muonja which in Swahili means "Tester" has embraced her life, the adversities and tests she had to undergo living here. With Obama's new immigration law, Muonja is hoping to adjust her status and find her way back home soon. This made her smile. #oggl_ig #womenhistorymonth #blackportraiture #muonjasimba #makeportrait #makeportraits #bedstuyportrait #brooklynportrait #brooklynphotography #streetportrait #streetphotography #igers #instamood #sonya7r
