Reena Ramteke

Community Correspondent, Chhattisgarh

Reena was born in Gariaband, Chhattisgarh. She worked for some years in Dhamteri district and then in Jaitpur, before eventually joining Video Volunteers: "I liked taking photographs and, after getting my own camera, started to spend more and more time doing so... I see photography as a way to tell the truth about what is really happening." Reena recognised that not many women were working as photographers and, through her work, wanted to change this trend.

The Project:
Reena's work looks at how effective government schemes in India are at tackling issues like malnutrition. The following series documents the life of an Anganwari worker running a nursery school in rural Chhattisgarh.
