    Fljurija Katunari, 18, cares for her two month-old daughter Elvira in a shack without water or electricity on the outskirts of Belgrade, Serbia. Neither she nor her husband have any formal employment. Tens of thousands of Roma people were displaced by the war in Kosovo, including Fljurija's family, and settled in Serbia. Seventeen years later, many still lack the documents, including a simple ID card, that would entitle them to social benefits, health care and the right to work.

    I'm drawn to humanity in this image. I love the contrasts in between hope and despair - the rough conditions of this young woman's life contrast with the hope and future of her baby daughter. Lovely.
