Photograph by Saiyna Bashir. Frame not included. For framing options, please email contact@ishkar.com

Local women who live under harsh climate conditions take water from a nearby water pond which was built by the World Food Programme. It helps store rainwater for future use. The image of these women depict the culture of Thar desert. Most of these communities are Hindus and on both sides of the border between India and Pakistan they wear the same traditional and vibrant outfits with the white bangles. I spent a lot of time with these women while working on an assignment and asked them how these ponds had changed their lives. The desert has very scarce water resources and the ponds have greatly impacted their livelihoods in an area that gets very little rain each year. Due to the impact of climate change these communities are struggling more than ever before.

Story

LE CONCEPT

Dans les pays déchirés par la guerre, la grande majorité des photographes professionnels travaillent pour des agences de presse. Cela signifie que leur travail couvre essentiellement les conflits. Notre projet est motivé par l’opportunité de donner aux photographes talentueux un nouveau débouché pour leur travail. A travers ce projet, nous aimerions révéler un aspect des pays ravagés par la guerre, rarement dévoilé par les médias internationaux.
