Young Arbore Boy, Ethiopia, 2010, Limited Edition (50), 11x14 Handmade Silver Gelatin Print Toned in Selenium, Printed by the Photographer

The last 25 years of my life photographically are finally being printed in the darkroom, and the prints are being sold to support the sewing centers we will soon reopen in Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. Presently we have six sewing centers in two states of India, serving both the Hindu and the Muslim communities. 

In these sewing centers, young women learn a trade while also making clothing for their families. The centers are located in the rural areas, where young women have only one option normally, marriage and a family. At this moment, due to COVID-19, the work is on hold. However, we plan to restart the centers in 2022 and the funds from the sale of these portraits will be applied to the work in India. 

This print may be purchased through the Etsy link below.
