Here is a selection of photographs of village life in India Hardman took whilst serving in the 8th Ghurkha Rifles (1917-1922)
|Pandikkad, Kerala, South India - taken in 1921. |
Hardman's notes tell us: "What appears at first sight to be the performance of some mystic rite is really the serving of cups of tea to the two Moplah customers on the left."
|Villager Picking Rice - taken between 1917-1922. On the reverse of the print Hardman has written; 'In the image a villager is in a rice field and picking some and putting it into a basket. In the background there are Indian mountains'.|
