Jesmin (16) by Jouk Oosterhof

Every year worldwide, 12 million girls under the age of eighteen get married; many of them are even much younger. In Bangladesh, child marriage is prohibited by law but the law is not well enforced and child marriages occur on a large scale. The older the girl, the more her parents must pay for the dowry which only makes it worse. 

Jesmin is photographed anonymously to protect her safety.

Peoples choice second runner up
