Dalda 13-A Portrait of Homai Vyarawalla

India’s first female photojournalist, Homai Vyarawalla (1913–2012) documented major political and cultural figures during a career that spanned India’s transition from colonial rule to independence. Featuring in-depth interviews with her, Dalda 13-A Portrait of Homai Vyarawalla not only offers this unusual first-person insight but also delves into her experiences within the society where she lived and worked. (Monica Baker, 1995, UK, 23 minutes)
