"June: A 12-year-old Rohingya girl held her undernourished brother in a squalid camp in #Sittwe, Myanmar. Persecution forced thousands of #Rohingya to flee the country. This photo, which was shot on #nytassignment by Tomas Munita, is one of more than 80 featured in the 2015 #NYTYearInPictures. "Her face, sitting just below the photograph's vanishing point, forces the viewer to address both her expression as well as the place itself," said @jeffreyhensonscales, one of the @nytimes photo editors who curated the collection. "Her undernourished brother tells us even more of the suffering, which successfully helps to contradict the scenic beauty of this image." This #nytweekender, we're sharing one photo from each month of 2015. To see the full collection, visit the link in our profile." By nytimes on Instagram.
