India Women

Nicolaus Schmidt, Priyanka Dubey
Trafficking of women, rape – India is considered to be one of the most dangerous countries in the world for women. Nevertheless, some of the poorest of them often display a surprising self-confidence. Nicolaus Schmidt’s photographs illustrate what day-to-day life is like for Indian women in remote villages and in the slums of the megacities; his portrait series reflect their situation, caught between tradition, religion and the modern age.
The young Indian journalist Priyanka Dubey writes about violence against women but also about strong, self-confident women and new hopes for change. This book is published in cooperation with terre des hommes Germany in German, English and Hindi.
