Seventeen-year-old Sanginjon puts fresh cow dung patties on a cow shed wall to dry in Noumitkon Village in the Yaghnob Valley, Tajikistan on Aug. 24, 2010. The dung patties are prepared in summer to be used as fuel for cooking and heating during the winter. Sanginjon is deaf, as is her father and many in the valley, possibly due to malnutrition or genetics. (image by Marina Gorobevskaya)
