Rabbie, 5
Baquit Island, Philippines

Robbie spends most of her days fishing with her mother. She belongs to a semi-nomadic clan called the Tagbanua that fish and collect honey in order to survive. Her large family had gathered for a 10-day ritual honoring the one-year anniversary of her grandfather's death. For nine days, they sang and prayed, and on the 10th-the actual anniversary-they stayed up all night eating, singing and dancing. I took this photograph the morning after the all-night celebration. (Tagbanua)
