DURGA’S DAUGHTERS

LES FILLES DE DURGA

Documentary work on women in Mumbai

“Durga’s Daughters” is an amalgam of women’s courage in different situations, an allegory of the strength of the warrior goddess Durga, known as the invincible one. This photographic work gathers the testimony of several women who live independently, because life has led them to this situation, as well as the case of women seeking to have decision-making power in their own lives, without being cast into imposed loneliness. It also includes the eyes of young people who eagerly await the chance to change their own destiny. All this, against the backdrop of a Bollywood Mumbai, as the paradigm of the land of dreams.
