Photographer's Note

This is the second in a series of pictures from India - no camera on this trip (because of the amount of video equipment required) I had to resort to the picture button on a small S-VHS Panasonic camera. The quality off screen is appalling but I really like the compositions and I think they show interesting elements of Gujarati life in line with TE. I am posting this first paragraph with each picture because I don't want to field lots of picture quality responses unless anyone has suggestions how I can improve them further.


A Kokni (I have seen it spelt Kokhani as well) tribal woman from a village in South Gujarat. Many of the women in the village supplement the farming economy of the village with Amber Spinning - a small hand cranked spinning machine for cotton production to boost family incomes.

I interviewed this woman about her working life and the impact the extra income has had on their lives as women.

Perhaps the best way to look at these images is a bit like you would an advertising poster or a painting - sit back away from the screen and take a longer look!
