Portrait of a Woman

In a village in central India I visited this indigenous tribal people - the Baagha. They are forest people. Their belief system is animism. They worship the rain, the trees, and the tiger. They have no running water, no electricity. They draw water from their wells. They forage for food. Some among them capture rats and mice in the fields that they roast as delicacies. This woman was willing to pose for me in her doorway which acted as a perfect frame.


  1. Oh my, what a picture ... How close it feels to those you took in the Guatemalan Highlands ...

    xox, L.

  2. Very cool photo.. will you be writing more about the Baagha?

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. Yes, I probably will, but most likely in my book. Though perhaps also in my blog, now that you mention it! Thanks for the idea.

  4. if you are from America or even from Europe, you will find some peculiarities when you go to India, their traditions are so different from Western side
