Mono – culture ?

The concern for the loss of diversity in South Asia has led to a new initiative. One that gives a platform for stimulating and  presenting photographic and video documentation of people marginalized in India. One point of view is that these people (more generally referred to as ‘tribes’ or ‘adivasis’) chose to live apart in higher or forested landscapes to avoid contact with dominant ways of living around them.  Another is that they have been ‘pushed’ to the margins. Today, many of them are completely unable to benefit from the booming economy of present day India.

The website of the Indian Tribal Heritage hosts some of the visual documentation that I have made in northeast and central India
