This collection of photographs by Ketaki Sheth offers a glimpse into the world of Patel twins in Britain and Gujarat, India. The surname Patel dates back to the 15th century and was originally a title bestowed by the Moghuls on those who sorted out village disputes. Many of the Patels living in the UK arrived in two major waves of immigration — from Kenya in 1968 and from Uganda in 1972. Ketaki Sheth is one of India's leading women photographers. She lives and works between Mumbai and London. With foreword by Raghubir Singh. Sheth herself has written an extensive introduction on the background and history of the Patels.
