19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Woman in Jewelry

This photo shows a woman posing in her jewelry. In my photograph, I tried to capture the idea that life is fleeting and eventually everything is overtaken by nature and destroyed. While many objects in our everyday lives are kept up and used, they will eventually become ruined after we are long gone. It is interesting how the things people value vary drastically across different cultures and times and what we find important may not mean anything to other people.
