India 08: In search of clean water

Drawing water

In spring 2008, I had the fortunate opportunity to travel to India for three months. Originally, the trip was on behalf of Whitman Direct Action’s Sadhana Clean Water Project but, when I learned my frequent flyer ticket mandated a May return, I decided to do a wee photo essay too. My goal? To understand India’s cultural, social, and religious constraints to clean water access.

The images will be published in a forthcoming issue of Consilience

All along the way, I blogged the highlights:

  • Chai man – 23 April 2008 – McLeod Ganj, Himachal Pradesh, India
  • Book Club – 7 April 2008 – Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India
  • India at the core, abridged – 26 March 2008 – Colaba, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
  • Spot the Giraffe – 27 February 2008 – KIS, Kodaikanal, Tamil Nadu, India
  • Splashdown – 13 February 2008 – Kolkata, West Bengal, India
  • Last Minute – 4 February 2008 – Tualatin, Oregon, USA

And when I figured out Twitter has an SMS shortcode in India, I tweeted quite regularly, too. A small percentage of the photos have found their way on to Flickr.
