15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Crying for the greatest loss

Just five moths before this picture was taken this beautiful woman lost both her father and her 10 year old daughter in a car accident. Fortunately her two younger daughters survived the accident. She suffered two great losses on the same day. She came from NY to the same beach 10 years ago when she was pregnant to that child and here she is, 10 years later, visiting the same beach without her daughter…. She started crying again. I silently took her permission to continue photographing. I was crying along with her... Natalia has been inspirational with speeches and support to other people that have gone through similar tragedies.
