At the start of 2023, members of a women’s garment collective in Tirupur, Tamil Nadu came together to learn photography skills from a professional photojournalist, Bhargav Shandilya. Then, they were given cameras and spent three months documenting their lives and experiences as homeworkers in the garment supply chain.
The photos they took expose both the challenges and benefits of homeworking, employees who are an integral part of the fashion supply chain and are nonetheless often denied fundamental rights including minimum wage, sick pay and maternity leave.
