“Whilst tutoring on a painting holiday in Kerela, India, it soon became obvious the local women do a lot of the manual work whilst the men sit hunched in the shadows drinking Chia. A woman under the tin roof washed clothes, dried and ironed them using hot coals and steam in 30 degrees of heat, and to an immaculate finish. Her stall was a hive of activity. I wanted to capture the dust, rambling wooden structures, men sitting idlily, the colour of the sarees and bustle of rural life.”
