“Women are never stronger than when they arm themselves with their weaknesses.”
(Marie Anne de Vichy-Chamrond, marquise du Deffand – French writer, hostess and patron of the arts,1697–1780)
I met this lady in a little village nearby Lucknow, the capital of the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.
Like most of the ladies there she was making traditional Chikan embroidery.
Everyone knew I was coming in order to take pictures so they were wearing their best saris, the place was filled up with happiness.
This lady was shy however she asked for her portrait and she became proud to see herself on the screen of my camera.
I was touched by her rough beauty wrapped with bashfulness, it was probably her weakness…
