Fotografías de la serie Women
«Indian women as subjects of photographic representation have never been seen as anything other than exotic models of attractiveness... its current avatar being the one dimensional Bollywood stereotype. And that, ironically in an age where women's accomplishments in practically every arena have far surpassed their male counterparts.
These are portraits of urban Indian women, selected for their interestingness rather than their physical charms, drawn from a variety of disciplines, sometimes confirming to gender stereotypes and sometimes defying them.»
