THE VISIT


Mariam experienced her beard growing in her face since she was 14. Since then she has been always fighting against it, shaving it, hiding it. Until she turned 30 years old and decided to accept her beard as part of herself and personality. Then Mariam decided to work as "The bearded woman" for circus attractions and similar related occasions. Mariam is from Germany and has a son now getting in his twenties. These images were taken in occasion of her first visit to Denmark.
