Making Tea, Rajasthan, India, 2008

Over a dozen years ago my photography began thanks to a collaboration with Humana India. We were documenting a dozen schools in Rajasthan, including one in this village. In this image the teacher's mother was making tea for us after the photography.

Last year I visited this very village and sat down across from this building. We spoke with her family and all remembered us perfectly. What we learned is that the government school has vastly improved and that most of the children were now attending the school. We had very little time and were unable to photograph in the village. However next year I look forward to revisiting these villages photographically.
