I always take photos during fieldwork. First and foremost I use the pictures in my own work, but occasionally I also grant permission for other researchers or cultural institutions to use them in their publications and dissemination.These photos are from my fieldwork in the former Danish Trading colony Tranquebar, which is located in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu. They are taken in the period August 2007 – March 2008.
