A remarkable book of photographs accompanied by moving and often disturbing testimonies by the children about their lives within the caste system, their families, fears, futures, and dreams.
From the Publisher:
In the 2,000-year-old village of Vichya, in the state of Gujarat in northwestern India, Wendy Ewald photographed and taught twenty of the village's children. I Dreamed I Had a Girl in my Pocket is a record of her journey, a unique book in which words and images move on simultaneous planes. Ewald worked with the children to portray their families, friends, daily lives, and the sometimes secret stories of love, struggle, death, and bride-burning whispered by adults. The children's images are joined with Ewald's in an evocative narrative. Whether they attend school or work the fields, whether they are untouchables or of another caste, these rural children speak in eloquent voices and offer intimate glimpses of their lives. This small epic of an Indian village includes artifacts, and artworks, along with stories told by the children and other villagers, collected by Ewald. These stories, along with Ewald's portraits of the children, bear witness to a culture's first encounter with a camera.A remarkable book of photographs accompanied by moving and often disturbing testimonies by the children about their lives within the caste system, their families, fears, futures, and dreams.

This unique book of photographs and text takes place in the 2000-year-old village of Vichya in the desert of Gujarati, India. There, photographer and teacher Wendy Ewald lived and taught twenty of the village's children, ages ten to fourteen years, the art and craft of photography.

Whether they attend school or work the fields, whether they are untouchables or of another caste, the children speak chillingly of their concern over their impending marriages and stories of bride-burning, of their hopes and dreams, and of their almost unanimous desire to photograph the gods.

The children's pictures and oral histories are joined with Ewald's evocative observations and images of the town and its people.Photographs and narratives feature the children of rural India
Annotation:
This book of photographs of a village in the Indian desert is accompanied by moving and often chilling testimonies by the children who live there, about the caste system, bride-burning, their hopes and dreams, their family life--and their almost unanimous desire to photograph the gods.

Praise

Philadelphia Inquirer
"The fascinating and haunting black-and-white documentary mixed evocative portraits of the children with their equally remarkable view of the world through text and photos by both teacher and students." - Bonnie Weller 08/04/1996
