  • It is part of UNFPA’s annual #IDONT campaign, which calls for ending child marriage. Five school-aged girls in New York volunteered to act as a canvas for Ms. Jarallah. Photo illustration by Whitney Kidder
  • She used deliberately excessive makeup to create dissonance between the girls’ youth and the traditional trappings of a wedding. Photo illustration by Whitney Kidder
