It was during a month in Kerala that the women's issues in India became tangible to me. I could see it by the division on the buses to the amount of girls forbidden to go to school, the injustice was thrown to my face. I felt that there was no way that I could ignore this reality and not talk about it. That was when I met Lakxmi, the daughter of the house maid where I was staying. This is a fourteen year old woman that deserves to be seen as such, as a human being worth of all human rights, a human being that is more than simply a girl. She is fighter for life. a surviver. And so are all of the other women that I've been photographing for the past nine months. Language played the role of an almost infinite wall, where some of their stories were left untold. But never the less, the future and the past are present on their bodies, and words become close to unnecessary.
