Delhi found #1

I came to one of these vintage shops in Haus Khaz, New Delhi and found several black and white images of Indian women - strange that there are so many. I picked out around 7 images that made me laugh at first sight. I find the women/girls in these photos fascinating and defiant against the stereotypical images of what an Indian woman in particular, or any Asian woman in general, is expected to be. They simply looked like they were enjoying themselves and I love that. I scanned them and added my own illustration, with the flower drawings inspired by Marimekko’s unikko or poppy, the rebel flower. 

Here is a sample.

More soon.
