India - Working with Worldreader in Delhi

 It was such a treat to be traveling to the outskirts of Delhi and photographing for Worldreader our last two days India. This little one finally warmed up at the end.

It was such a treat to be traveling to the outskirts of Delhi and photographing for Worldreader our last two days India. This little one finally warmed up at the end.

Just before our flight out of Delhi, I had the opportunity to spend a few days photographing in the field with Worldreader, an organization that promotes literacy around the globe by bringing e-books to every child and his or her family. We had met with the team while we were still in San Francisco, so as a project long planned for, Alex, still recovering from Dengue, convinced me to push on without him. 

Along with Annya from Worldreader, a small team of people from their partners, and a local advocate and translator, we travelled all around Delhi, capturing and documenting people's real stories and experiences with Worldreader and its mobile application. While simply being invited into schools and the homes of local families felt like a privilege on its own, getting to see and hear how an ordinary device could engage children and stimulate interest in reading was inspiring to see. I could not have been more thankful for the experience those last few days in India.
