Synopsis: The story of Homai Vyarawalla's life and her work spans an entire century of Indian history. India's first woman photojournalist, Homai photographed the last days of the British Empire and her work traces the birth and growth of a new nation. She was the only professional woman photojournalist in India during her time. Her survival in a male dominated field is all the more significant because the profession continues to exclude most women even today. This book acknowledges her role as a pioneer among women and her contribution to early photojournalism in India. She was recently honoured with the first National Photo Award for Lifetime Achievement by the Government of India.
Product Description: The last days of the British Empire, and the birth and growth of a new nation as documented by India's first woman photojournalist, a pioneer among women.
