Fate Breakers : Stories of Outstanding Indian Women
Fighting against prejudice and determinism, be it from birth, from life’s perils , from intolerance or disrespect towards the other, leading this battle as a woman… “Fate breakers” portrays several outstanding women in India who make a difference and empower themselves, for themselves and for others, against all odds. These remarkable women, who transcend darkness to enter the realm of light by the invincible force of their will, are glorified in their daily struggle for life’s lessons and the courage they represent. These incredible women show us that things can be the other way round.
About the photographer Pascal Mannaerts
Pascal Mannaerts was born in Brussels (Belgium) in 1978. He studied law at the Free University of Brussels and is currently working with asylum seekers in Belgium.
Blessed with an artistic bent and wanderlust, he discovered photography during his student years. Sharing and recording his travel adventures became a priority. A first visit to India in 2000 revealed a deep admiration for the Subcontinent and he returned for a one-year visit at the end of his university studies in India and across Southeast Asia. This is the first of many return engagements.
Backpacking to Asia, Africa, Latin America, North Africa and the Middle East during the last 15 years has given Pascal the opportunity to portray humanity in its strongest forms. Curiosity and a passion for images have been fused with a profound attraction to the human element.
Pascal is a self-taught photographer with publication credits in Geo Magazine, the Lonely Planet, le Guide du routard, and other European magazines. Several exhibitions of his pictures were held in Europe, Brazil and India.
