Women Architects of India

I had an opportunity to photograph the leading and renowned women architects, academics, and archivists of India. The photo essay is a part of an article written by Prof. Mary Woods of Cornell, and Prof. Namita V. Dharia of Rhode Island School of Design. It's published in the 75th Anniversary edition of Marg, India's premier arts magazine.

The photographs were done virtually, through video calls on Facetime, Skype, Whatsapp, etc. It was a new, interesting yet challenging process.

Sadly, Revathi Kamath, one of the most important sustainable architects of India passed away in late July this year, just two months after we made the photographs of her.
