  • A story about a community, a community of africans that where brought over to India through slavery now they have made India their home. I spent 6 days with the Siddi community in Karnataka documenting its lives. They have blessed me with their hospitality and generosity. I felt like home and Indeed I was HOME.

    ( Two Siddi elders sitting in the shade while waiting for a community meeting to start. Jan 2013, Karnataka India)
