A high school beauty pageant in East Java

“At the annual school beauty pageant, a girl and boy from each section of tenth and eleventh grade represent their class. After strutting down the catwalk in front of the judges, each couple answers questions posed by the previous year’s winners. The entire garden next to the makeshift catwalk teems with their classmates, who are holding signs and chanting in support. This picture is extra special, because it features all the girls from tenth grade — my students.”
