People with stories inside (India)

Work-in-progress collection of people in the world, and the worlds inside them.

These are strong grandmothers from low-caste indian tribal communities, and these are educated women that were forced to be housewives in a house and family they don’t belong.

These are fathers proud to show off the history of their family and community, and these are old and forgotten men waiting at the station while trying to hold a cigarette with their deformed hands.

These are young girls submissively waiting for their turn to have their marriage arranged, and these are honest working fellows who dedicate their lives to the hope of breaking the poverty cycle of their families’ and give the dignity they deserve.

These are lonely men living beside a remote lake and taking care of it as their own child, and these are tribal leaders who have to manage their tribes not having a place to live due to not being allowed by society to own land.

These are couples who have to struggle to hide their love from family due to religion and culture, and these are mothers who their daughters decided to commit suicide due to family pressures to get married at fifteen years old.

These are kids who fell in the trap of child labor due to lack of perspectives for their future, and these are women who were brave enough to fight inertia and culture to get a better life for their families.

People without hope, people longing for something.
People with dreams and people who fight everyday with a smile on their face.

Resilient people, lonely people, resigned people, lovely people.

This world is full of people, and all of them are full of stories.
