Exhibition Catalog accompanying the exhibition Brick Workers at the thought after Kriti Gallery in Varanasi, India with support of the Banaras Cultural Foundation.

The catalog includes images of the project Brick Workers and is intertwined with texts and quotes from Nobel peace prize winner Desmond Tutu, novelist and activist James Baldwin, Chennai-based NYT contributing writer and author Dan Morrison and Delhi-based writer and photographer Juhi Saklani and the photographer herself.

In 2017 Anja Bruehling gave up her global executive career to pursue her passion -documentary and fine art photography. She has worked and traveled to over 60 countries. Her passions are documenting people, diverse cultures, social issues, and the human condition around the world. She sees the camera as a medium to stay curious more than ever and to make observations, explore places, prosperity, beauty, people, and the socio-economic problems they face.
