Portraits of Self-Immolation Protesters

In less than a week, there have been three more self-immolations in Tibet.  This brings the number to 54.  At least 44 of these individuals have died – and 41 of them have set themselves alight in this fiery form of rebellion since January of 2012.

Take a moment to see their faces.  All of them had their own stories.  We’re left to fill in a lot of blanks.
