By Veronique Van Hoorick
Documenting life inside an Indian home on Mauritius island. I had the chance to have a close contact with the people and be invited into their homes. I could experience their way of living from another perspective. Mauritius an island nation in the Indian Ocean with a rich history, cultural diversity and contrast of colors. The Island retains the mark of these colonization periods by its places, architecture or language.
People are so welcoming in their homes. Yet 60 percent of the island is Hindu, even though only 40 percent originally came from India. The rest of the Mauritian people are primarily Christian or Muslim.
Daily rituals, simplicity and family love are there.
Wherever we live, it is about freedom, equality and the pursuit of happiness.
Indian Ocean, Mauritius Island.
