Photographer's Note

I am not sure what her name is, but she kept bugging me to take her photograph, even though I had told her she did not *meet the criteria* (that sounds terrible doesn't it?). I had to somehow focus the project. Anyhow, there are times where you have to break your own rules because the moment seems to be fit an idea you have in your mind...or, because the lighting is good. Needless to say, I gave in.

Oh...this was taken at approximately 6pm. She will have gone out early in the morning to collect recyclable waste from the streets of Ahmedabad. She will then have returned home, sorted the rubbish into its various types.

This is the best part - where she will be paid for her day's labor. She has no idea how much she will be paid or whether she is being paid teh right amount as she cannot read or write. Unfortunately, the money will not stay in her hand for very long, as she has debts to pay or food to buy...
