this is not a picture of women practicing good posture.
i wish it was such a photograph.
in this photograph, they are victims of civil war. in another photography, they might find a new metaphor to fill but in this photograph, they carry burdens which i do not understand.
it is impossible to talk about this story without falling under one of two pitfalls.

boring: ...why would i waste your time with an example of something boring?
