This is a work in progress.
The project was born in 2010 after I came across an article on farmer suicides in India. It affected me deeply. Maybe because my own grandfather was a farmer or because I had been to India & struggled to understand death, particularly suicide, in a country where I felt people worked hard to survive in order to avert death. My intention is to show the intimate bond between man & land by focusing on farmers & the natural elements that make their survival & livelihood possible as well as impossible.
