Being Zoroastrian: Understanding the Parsi community

Photographer Kainaz Amaria has been born and brought up in America. As a child, when she’d tell her friends at school she was a Zoroastrian, they thought she was pretending to be a superhero. Years later, Amaria came to India to understand her Zoroastrian heritage better by spending time with and documenting the lives of Parsis (which is how we know Zoroastrians) in India today. Amaria’s has selected some of her footage and made a video titled Being Zoroastrian. It includes beautiful photographs and rare scenes like a ceremony inside a fire temple. Amaria spoke to us about Being Zoroastrian.
