Banjara + Home, Rajasthan, India, November of 2013


From my first day in rural India up until my most recent visit, the Banjara Community has taken a hold of my imagination. They have enchanted me, through their incredible independence and deeply moving ability to survive. The girls wear the most beautiful, pleated skirts while the women put on magnificent bracelets and metal adornments. Here is a child sitting in front of her home, in a remote village at least an hour from any road. It took us some time to get there, and the sun was less than ideal. At least I have this portrait, and this expression!
