Invisible No More: This Artist is Busting Gender Stereotypes With Portraits of Women Farmers

We often imagine “the Indian farmer” as a man, forgetting that women form a significant part of the agrarian economy.

Delhi-based artist Pariplab Chakraborty managed to capture some faces for these watercolour portraits.
