Underexposed: Lights in Dark Spaces (37 photos)
by Kajal Nisha Patel Gold Star Critiquer/Gold Star Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C:  W: 63 N: 762] (4542)

(a working title...)

Dedicated to the self-employed ragpicker women of Ramapir Tekra slum in Ahmedabad.

They leave their homes at 5am - some of whom return at 4pm to bring home a meagre 60rupees. They will collect anything from Newspapers, water pouches, glass & cardboard.

These are strong, independent, progressive women..though overlooked in society. They play a huge role in keeping the streets of Ahmedabad clean. Many are the sole income generators...many of them widows...
