A couple of days ago I was in Jodphur and went on a little trip to a small village that houses separate compounds for cooperative families.
I met two brothers who run a pottery compound and they have loads of daughters and children there. It started off a little awkwardly with my translator trying to explain the concept of giving photos for Portrait Equality and also I couldn’t get the camera to work – imagine my stress!
Eventually I got it working and the family was so pleased with the images that they called friends in off the street to come into their home to view the portraits. I even took a tester image of my friend and the girls kept it because they were so infatuated with our light skin – Haha!
Straight after that I met another lady and her mother in a Brahman compound/ cooperative. The woman had just had a baby, not even a month old named Natasha and I took their first ever family portrait – what a beautiful experience. Three generations of gorgeous females. Then I got to share with the Grandfather his first glimpses of his new grandaughter!
I’ve met another mother and her son on a public train and will be visiting an orphanage today also with plenty more photographic opportunities! Loving the experience so far and can’t wait to share my proper photos when I return!
