This girl grew up in a concentration camp.
This photograph was taken by Chim (David Seymour) in a home for emotionally disturbed children located in Warsaw, 1948. There are a few versions of this image, but most of the captions (including one at the War/Photography Exhibit currently on view at the Brooklyn Museum) mention that the subject grew up inside a concentration camp. There’s little information about the girl’s identity, her name was Tereszka, a diminutive version of Teresa. Her eyes are piercing, like a window to her soul. Not the eyes of an innocent youth. She’s probably experienced horrors at that age most will fortunately never have to. Like the soldiers who have seen heavy combat, she’s got the terrifyingly haunting one thousand yard stare.

Something I didn't realise until much later in life was that there are models for everything, those hands you see in an advert belong to an individual who is considered to have perfect hands, the same for legs, feet, hair and so on. Advertisers should be forced to label photoshopped pictures as just that "This image has been manipulated to improve the model's appearance".
