The 2016 EyeEm Photographer of the Year – Zacharie Rabehi, @zacharie_r, a 28 years old from Paris, France. This shocking and heartbreaking portrait was taken by Zacharie Rabehi in Agra, India. “Shaboo faced an acid attack when she was just one month old, resting on her mother’s lap. The reason is unanswered. The attack killed her mother, and her father was sent to jail. Her brother was adopted by an aunt, who refused to take Shaboo in because of the stigma associated with these victims. Shaboo was adopted by an orphanage Ashram in Mumbai, where she received the emotional and financial support to graduate college.”
