Sister Indira

This work is from the Re-take of Amrita series. 

Excerpt from Vivan Sundaram, Vivan Sundaram: Re-take of Amrita, Tulika Books, New Delhi, 2001:

'Umrao Singh’s Paris photograph brings out the Europeanness of Indira’s features: her style of dress, her relaxed manner, make her an elegant model. In a photograph taken in the mid-40s in Shimla Indira, wearing a shalwar kameez, looks very withdrawn.'
