Bulgarian Muslim bride Kimile Avdinova and her groom Kadri Kichukov pose in front of their dowry during their wedding ceremony in the village of Ribnovo, in the Rhodope Mountains, Bulgaria, January 2, 2022. The remote mountain village of Ribnovo in southwest Bulgaria has kept its traditional winter marriage ceremony alive despite decades of Communist persecution, followed by poverty that forced many men to seek work abroad. The wedding ritual was resurrected with vigour among the Pomaks - Slavs who converted to Islam under Ottoman rule. The highlight of the ceremony is the painting of the bride's face, where in a private rite open only to female in-laws, her face is covered in thick, chalky white paint and decorated with colourful sequins.

Rode Naika Joseph, 13, and her brother Rodelin Joseph, 18, mourn with cousins and nephews of the deceased, Violette Jean, at the gates of the cemetery in Plaisance, Haiti, March 20, 2021. Despite the country's poverty, funerals are often extravagant social events in Haiti, complete with a festive wake and fanfare bands. Haiti's death rites are viewed as important to guarantee a safe passage to the afterworld with cremations and organ donations rare because the deceased are deemed still to need their bodies - but also a way to mark one's social standing.
