VIDEO: A Heartbreaking Look At A Couple Forced To Marry As Young Teens

For 15 years, documentary photographer Stephanie Sinclair has focused her camera on what she calls “everyday brutality” — the violence, genital mutilation and forced marriage endured by girls and young women around the world, including in Afghanistan, India and Nigeria.

Now she has won the Anja Niedringhaus Courage in Photojournalism Award, granted by the International Women’s Media Foundation and named in memory of the Pulitzer Prize-winning German war photographer killed in Afghanistan in 2014. We spoke to Sinclair, who was born in Miami and lives in upstate New York, about her award, her photos and videos of the travails of child brides around the world, and about recently becoming a mother herself. The conversation has been edited for length and clarity.
