Come visit the Lama Library through January 30th, 2015 to view an exhibit of photos taken by Salvatore Lanzilotti.
In March 2014 my wife and I visited our daughter in Northern India. The pictures displayed here represent a small sample of my “First Look” at Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, and the Uttarakhand countryside. Many of the images highlight the over 94 percent of India’s working population that is part of the unorganized labor sector. They reflect women, men, and children engaged in unlicensed, self-employed or unregistered economic activity. Images of owner-manned shops and roadside stands, bicycle and cart transporters, rural life, farmers, and construction helpers provide a glimpse of the difficulty of economic survival in India. Also presented are a variety of images that highlight followers of two of the major religions of India – Hinduism and Islam – and visitors to historical sites that are part of the country’s rich and diverse cultural heritage. – Salvatore Lanzilotti
