India’s Subterranean Stepwells: Photographs by Victoria Lautman
Since the 5th century, stepwells have served as water-harvesting systems that descend into the earth and enable communities to access the water table or rainwater gathered below. A selection of 46 photographs by journalist Victoria Lautman captures the diversity and sublime beauty of these architectural marvels.
