Description

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. She was recently honoured with the first National Photo Award for Lifetime Achievement by the Government of India.

"A chronicle of contemporary history seen through pictures taken by a photojournalist who's mostly as unobtrusive as a fly on the wall."
