Daily Life in India
We often see the destitute of India: the beggars, the homeless, and the trash sifters. But what about the class and castes just above those who have no home at all—a class that still survives on meager jobs of farming, manual labor, and factory work? From 2011 to 2012 I documented these citizens and their challenging ways of life all across India. From the deserts of the north to the betel-nut-growing regions of the south, I lived with and worked to understand the lives and struggles of those just barely able to put food on the table. Many gave me meals and offered me seconds, even when they had no second helpings to really give. The generosity of these people never failed to astound me.
