Tribe woman, India

I've been taking lots of portraits recently. This one has a nice plain background; mud walls. I'm happier with the lighting as the colours look more real.

This is a Banni Tribes woman. The area is Kutch in Gujarat. This area has many tribes people who are experts at embriodery, textiles, jewellery, leather work and pottery. They are amazingly friendly and I felt most welcomed by them.
