Smiling unveiled woman in Yemen

A woman from the area of Hoddeida, not veilled, and with a heavy yellow make up against the sun, Yemen. Not so common in the region to see such a nice woman who doesn't hide in front of a camera...

    Eric you have some amazing work, and great subjects.
    Why the yellow makeup? Is it to protect the skin, besides the cosmetic need...

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Portraits of African-Asiatic People, and we'd love to have your photo added to the group.

    The yellow makeup, makes this even more stunning... lovely capture and contrasting earth/skin tones & the black.

    I like how she has drawn in her eyebrows in as well as the outline of her eyes - these women surely understand the purpose of makeup - bringing out the beautiful features . . .

    Eric, its called modesty :)
    For some it is fear (misplaced and tradition) others it is modesty.(Hayaa)
