As she works on a social history project that explores the lives and experiences of Indians in Zambia, identity remains to be a point of reference and interest for Sana Ginwalla. Thus, constantly changing and learning about her own place as an individual in the world, this series comes from Sana’s latest journey to India.

Taken in January of this year, this collection though entitled “The Silence in Hyderabad” includes a few scenes from her family’s village in Gujarat too, as well her first visit to Hyderabad, showcasing images from the famous Golconda Fort, where she encountered for the first time a site that demonstrated the rich Islamic history that is present in India. The series is a subtle self-exploration of silence, resistance and womanhood in spaces and faces that are all too familiar and distant at once.
