It was a magazine clipping that my mother handed me on my way back to the US that first introduced me to Homai Vyarawalla, India’s first woman photojournalist. In a field that is clearly overrun by men, I was easily charmed by her tenacity and resolve to also bear witness to India’s first waking moments as an independent nation.
Check out this film – it’s rather long at 70 minutes – to get acquainted with a legend in the field of photojournalism.
Post your thoughts below in the comments section. I look forward to hearing from you.
