"In August, as the monsoon arrives, Indian farmers begin sowing seeds. During this time-honored practice, they were singing Marathi songs about seeking divine blessings for a prosperous harvest and the good health of their loyal bullocks. I love capturing the bond between Animals and farmers. Bullocks in India are beloved like family, receiving the same love and care as cherished children."
