“In Indian culture, counting around 40 million widows, the loss of a husband is often a one-way ticket towards isolation, poverty and despair. It’s a curse.

For centuries, the traditional Hinduism refers to often distorted religious interpretations to render the marginalization of widows acceptable. They are conditioned to tolerate the daily violation of their dignity as a kind of atonement for an imagined “sin”, in other words the responsibility of their husband’s death.

In my portrait series, I try to visually translate the consequences, this outdated Hindu tradition has on the lives of the affected women.”
