Stylist + Client, Virat Nagar, Rajasthan, India, 2020

While the world around us has at times become unrecognizable, I take comfort in looking at the images made just a couple of months ago. My hope is that we will rebound and find ourselves in a better place.

As soon as we are able to do so, the sewing centers will reopen. In addition to sewing, the centers will now include a parlor course. This was the idea of the teachers, and all students raisedtheir hands when asked if they wanted to participate.

Nobody in the villages has this capacity, and if the young women gain this knowledge... they can then take it with them to their husbands' villages and have a greater ability to support themselves and their families.

In this image two young students are having some fun imitating their older sisters, with Shanu taking center stage once again as the stylist for the afternoon. Her seriousness always amazes me!
