Photo art & photo design – made by fotoart the average gives the world its inventory, the exceptional its value. Oscar Wilde the furniture at all not bad: Brand new the sideboard, sofa classy and comfortable, from the flea market the designer lamp. But something is missing! A real eye-catcher! Something with character and personality! And something that not everyone has! Flower pots so definitely fall off the walls could do with art! A real Gerhard Richter would of course not be bad, unfortunately it has the four million euros just not ready. And the Picasso print from IKEA somehow he remembers at the last visit to the dentist. The solution: photo art – framed – in large format. And what kind! A previously unpublished portrait of Joseph Beuys on brushed aluminium 100 x 150 cm, for example. Or how about acrylic glass visions: full colours, flowing forms.

I believed her when she said that I will from now on have much power in the village. The first man with whom I had sex that night, was her brother. It is not uncommon for Devadasis. He stayed with me for a few years.
He took care of me. Today he’s coming less often. My two children are by him. But the horror for me started with the day of my initiation. My friends left me. The women of the village abused me.
There are middlemen who constantly tried to provide me free. Until today the men harass me, when I go on the market.” Basammas hope: through the SNEHA Selbshilfegruppe she has regained confidence. Together with the Andheri partner problems be discussed openly with other temple dancers and normal women of Devadasis.

My mother had no other choice. “Urugonda comes from a low kast-family, it is a so called Dalit. She has experienced priests and elders in their previous lives only exploitation and oppression by the Hochkastigen. Training could not make it. Already as a little girl, it was consecrated of the goddess Mathamma after she was very ill on measles. Her mother brought her in desperation to the priest who spoke to her, that only the consecration of the child to the temple would bring about healing. Only after the initiation ritual at the age of 14 she learned bitterly, what it meant to be a consecrated life. All the men of the village wanted to sleep with her. As a Mathamma she could not refuse. (Here the superstition comes into play, that all men worship this deity, practically regarded as husbands of the Devadasi are.). Grid lock external character of a Devadasi women and young girls wear characters are considered a red and White Pearl Necklace in older women, that the goddess has taken possession of the woman a band a leather pieces at the end is wrapped the girl around the neck. It is hereby considered married with the deity and therefore no other man can more separation.
