The Wider Image: Haiti's brides beat hurricanes, power cuts and protests to wed in style
Marriage is not as widespread in Haiti as in other Western countries, given the long-standing creole tradition of 'plasaj,' an informal marital relationship that is common in rural areas but not legally recognized. Yet marriage has greater prestige and is particularly favored by Haiti's wealthier, cosmopolitan urbanites, according to Haitian sociologist Tamas Jean Pierre - not least because it is recognized abroad. Still, in a country where more than half the population lives under the poverty line of $2.41 per day, only the wealthiest of Haitian couples can afford the full shebang of a wedding ceremony, lavish dinner reception, and honeymoon. Most have to get creative. Sometimes multiple couples get married at the same time to save on church fees. They might skip the reception or, in the countryside, offer a simple meal of bread, fried plantains, rice and coffee. Sometimes, the whole village might provide food. Disputes can occur when there is not enough for all those who turn up, or when guests try to take home dishes or drinks. Despite tight purse strings, the showiness of the ceremony is the one element of the Haitian wedding that never lacks.

Priest Xia Shiran, 25, sweeps stairs on the day of Hungry Ghost Festival, at Taoist monastery Jiuyang Palace, in Laiwu of Jinan city, Shandong province, China, September 2, 2020. Shiran encountered priest Liang Xingyang's Weibo channel. He was surprised that a Taoist priest could be so active on social media. Out of curiosity, he started to learn more about him. In 2015, he was converted to Taoism and two years later he started living in the temple. "Almost everyone has a fantasy about Taoist life as if priests don't ever eat or walk, or don't use money. After I became one, I realized that they are normal people, and everyone is just studying non-stop," Shiran said. "From here above we can see the downhill villages. It's definitely more convenient to eat and commute in the city. However they might dream of better air quality, slower pace of life and quieter natural environment we have up here. When life on the mountain becomes hard, I think of those who envy our lives. Everyone has different moments of happiness and comfort though each of us envies others."

The Wider Image: Taoist priest honours China's coronavirus dead with memorial tablets
Priest Xia Shiran, 25, takes off his socks before bedtime in his bedroom inside Taoist temple Jiuyang Palace, in Laiwu of Jinan city, Shandong province, China, September 6, 2020. Shiran encountered priest Liang Xingyang's Weibo channel. He was surprised that a Taoist priest could be so active on social media. Out of curiosity, he started to learn more about him. In 2015, he was converted to Taoism and two years later he started living in the temple. "Almost everyone has a fantasy about Taoist life as if priests don't ever eat or walk, or don't use money. After I became one, I realized that they are normal people, and everyone is just studying non-stop," Shiran said. "From here above we can see the downhill villages. It's definitely more convenient to eat and commute in the city. However they might dream of better air quality, slower pace of life and quieter natural environment we have up here. When life on the mountain becomes hard, I think of those who envy our lives. Everyone has different moments of happiness and comfort though each of us envies others."
