Photography is the main tool for visual documentation of the tribes and
people of this region.
At present I am developing a photo archive and a book of the NAGA tribes in
Nagaland. The next step in this project will be to make a CD ROM which will
include many of these photographs as well as video clips and music.
Concurrently I am working in Arunachal Pradesh using photography to
document the lives of the Mishmi, Adi, and Apatani tribes, and in
Manipur State to photograph the Meiteis.
Note: I am interested in collaboration with anthropologists and
historians with an interest in this region (closed to foreigners for
last 25 years). Photographs and data available for specific research or
on long term loans to Museums, Archives, Libraries, Universities with
Socio-Anthropological departments/faculties, for research purposes.
