another idea for People and Place assignment 5 - people from village

For some time, I have been photographing people from a village in Orissa, India. They are Tibetan and came as refugees to this place during the 1960's.

Many of the images are from scanned slide film although a few are from a digital SLR camera.

While I am happy with this series of images, this work does not really fit the brief of an assignment for which one is being asked to write a brief and then carry that brief out.

The photographs here are informal portraits that show something of the people pictured and their place in village life.
