An Islamic woman at first seems to be lost in a sea of men on this Jaipur street corner. I cropped their heads off to stress the point. Yet there are several contradictions at work in this image. The woman may be alone and seemingly vulnerable, yet her body language makes her look utterly confident. Her vividly colored clothing calls attention to her, yet nobody seems to look her way. Her masked face hides her identity, while her eyes seem to examine everything around her. She wears a costume that goes back in time, while surrounded by machines that point to the future. She is outnumbered here ten to one, yet she is the one who seems to be in charge.
