Description It's rare to see a woman sitting with a chai on the street anywhere in India. This lady was clearly of her own mind to sit and just enjoy. It takes great courage to go against the cultural grain. Asking for her photo was a genuine pleasure that seemed shared. Lucknow, India.
Valerie Rosen, Montreal Member Since August 2012 Artist Statement Valerie Rosen is a self-taught social documentary photographer who is most recognized for her evocative and poignant environmental portraits from India and Nepal. She feels most at home when she and her camera are crossing paths with people of other cultures, only to confirm that as much as we have our differences, it is our commonalities that truly bind. Valerie values the chance to express this truth about humanity through the integrity of her photographic images of real people with extraordinary ordinary lives.
Valerie is currently based in Montreal, Canada, and is available for hire as a freelance photographer.
