This Month in Photo of the Day: The Power of Photography

In the tiny Buddhist kingdom of Bhutan, environmental protection is one of the "four pillars of Gross National Happiness," along with sustainable development, cultural preservation, and good governance. A high entry fee for visitors keeps idyllic places like this eastern forest—through which Kunzang Choden sets off with her nine-month-old baby to visit family—free from crowds of backpackers.

Addario is one of 11 photographers featured in our "Women of Vision" exhibit. See more pictures from the exhibit and hear from the curators on Proof.
