Sardarni - The Souls of Sikh Women
My project on the Sikh-Punjabi Culture and religion, ‘Sardarni – The Souls of Sikh Women’ is essentially portraits and candid imagery of young and old Punjabi women in the Gurdwara (Sikh Temple). The portraits chart the ongoing evolution of Sikh culture and identity in Britain as the community's connection to its cultural roots subtly shift from generation to generation. Being one of the only Sikh girls in my town, I wanted to portray my perspective to other young girls that have grown up similar to myself. Despite not wearing traditional clothes, or going to the Gurdwara, the young generation are still connected to the culture; their identities have been kept and this has helped shape the way we see Punjabi Women.
