In Safri’s Home: Professor Gerald Berreman’s Photo-Diary from India (1957-1972)

For some 40 years Professor Gerald (Gerry) Berreman of UC Berkeley pursued a longitudinal study of social inequality (caste, gender, class) and environment in their historical context in a Garhwal village (Sirkanda) and its region.

In 2008, Professor Berreman participated in the Magnes Memory Lab project by bringing his own photographs taken in India, and providing commentaries to each of them, outlining the characters portrayed and their stories.
