Sarah Elliott: Rajasthan

Photo © Sarah Eliott-All Rights Reserved

Sarah Elliott's Rajasthan gallery is a collection of photographs showing life in this magnificent Indian state. Some of the photographs are captured by Sarah, presumably with her tongue firmly in her cheek, while others are posed portraits, and I think give you a feel for the quotidian life in the small towns (and even large cities) of the state.

Sarah is a freelance photographer who graduated from the Parson's School of Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography. In addition, she has also taken courses at Rhode Island School of Design, and at the ICP in New York. She has interned for James Nachtwey and assisted Staley Greene. She's focused on stories of global social issues, and her photographs have been published by The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Guardian, The Times, The Daily Telegraph, The Financial Times, The BBC. MSF and a host of other publications and organizations.

Most of her other galleries on her website are of more serious topics than Rajasthan. These include black & white photo essays on the Congo, Rwanda, Tonle Lap lake, and the interesting The Book of Mormon.
