Ulla Puggard has been working with The Girl Effect, a campaign working with young girls around the world to eradicate early childhood marriage, female genital mutilation and to improve education levels and status among young adolescent women and girls in poverty. She created this height chart for an exhibition alongside the photographer Stephanie Sinclair to illustrate the stages in these young girls lives, where many of them are married off as young as five years old.

Her work is a constantly evolving melting pot of Victorian curiosities and traditional Romanian folk art, but always has that warm feeling of brush and paper. Take a look at Aitch's portfolio here.
