About this title


In this exotic, boldly colorful book, famed photographer Hans Silvester points his lens at the inhabitants of a remote village in northwest India to create an engrossing view of a vanishing culture. From his marvelous photographs and from Catherine Clément's poetic and provocative essay emerges a moving portrait of a people—especially the women—who have little, yet appear to have found great personal freedom.

Living in houses made of earth and thatched with straw, with no running water or electricity, the women of this sand village in the harsh Thar Desert still manage to adorn themselves and their homes in a dazzling palette of colors that reflects their inner joy. This engrossing view of a never-before-photographed people will engage anyone interested in India or women's issues.
