I so appreciate the smiles of Indian people. A village woman is proud of the grain she has threshed with a few other women in the field. Her children play happily nearby.
I have always enjoyed taking pictures of people whose work is rarely seen. Whether it be a baker who rises before dawn, a milkmaid who milks morning and evening, or a field worker in a sea of others. Their work is important to them. It’s what they do. Like mothers who raise children at home. Everyone deserves to be seen and appreciated. I will return to India in a few short weeks. Stay tuned for more photos.
