Statement from Steve McCurry on the back of print Rajasthan, India. 1983

"I was driving down a road between Jodhpur and Jaisalmer in Rajasthan, India. It was sunny and sweltering hot at about 110°F (43°C), when the sky suddenly went dark and a pre-monsoon dust storm began. As the storm got stronger and more dramatic, the air became thick with dust. Through the haze, I could see these women huddled together off the side of the road protecting themselves from the driving wind. This region had been suffering from a drought for more than a decade and the women were singing a prayer for rain. I got out of the car, ran across a field and photographed them moments before the storm disappeared. Then the sun immediately came out, as if nothing had ever happened"
