Rajasthan, India, 1983

People often ask me what my favorite picture is. This picture of these women in a dust storm in India might in fact be my favorite picture. I was driving down the road one morning in Rajasthan and all of a sudden this dust storm came out of nowhere. This was pre-monsoon, when it is hot and dusty, and these dust storms can come up at any moment. As the dust storm kind of enveloped my taxi, my first inclination was to roll the windows up and not to get out, but then I thought that the whole purpose of my being here was to photograph this pre-monsoon condition. So I jumped out, I saw these women off the side of the road and I ran off to try and photograph them.
