A South Asian woman is many different things; sensual, compassionate, adaptable and above all emotionally strong. Her strength is passed down across generations from mother to daughter and comes from multiple experiences while raising her family and facing the world. My series speaks about this strength that grows within a woman, year after year, as she hides her endurance behind a ghunghat of elegance and poise. The ghunghat, a Hindi word for a wedding veil, represents the beauty of a woman's strength which is unique to her personality and the delicate web of life she weaves.
