Today, our photos come from Laura Cook, a professional photographer who travels all over the world on the quest to take photos of people in a beautiful and dignified way. Laura uses her pictures to tell the powerful, complex stories of her subjects. “It is time to strip away the negative images of so many countries and replace them with hope –- time to see with new eyes,” she writes on her website.
