Topic: Fistful of Dream : An ongoing documentary
This is my first post in the soundslides forum. I really have to thank the creators of soundslides for this wonderful software that aids in multimedia story-telling.
I am a photojournalist by profession, and I live in India.
For the last one year I have been working on an independent documentary photography project called 'Fistful of Dreams'. Through this project I foreground the issue of gender discrimination and racial prejudice in India by following the life a Five-year-old dark skinned girl from the very first day she was adopted by a family comprising of a single mother and another adopted girl.
Below is the link to it.

This is a ten minute multimedia show. I had presented it recently at Ateneo de Manila university, Philippines. I was full scholarship recipient for a Diploma in Photojournalism from the university and had presented it as part of my portfolio during my final defence. But, the work on this project continues beyond it. I'll soon have a book on it.
Looking forward to hearing your reactions. Feel free to share the link around.
