Weaving – Juzhaigou

Pilgrim in Rishikesh

June 10, 2011 – This was just before entering the poor man’s house. If you look closely there’s a coin on the metal container – which I put before taking the photo. I just couldn’t take advantage of the scenery without giving something back. However, only a few minutes later I realized that these people are far different from […]

Icy flavors

June 7, 2011 – Homemade ice-cream in Bhaktapur’s market. After inserting two toothpicks in the ice-cream, the seller rolls it vigorously for a couple of seconds so that it can be removed from the metal container. Because the ice-cream was a bit salty on the outside, we think salt was probably put on the inside of the container […]

The child within

May 30, 2011 – There’s something in this moment I was so lucky to capture, that speaks to the inner child. You should have seen playful adults chasing pigeons with the same enthusiasm, caught in their own time bubbles impervious to the outside world. It didn’t take long for me to join the club. I must have spent close […]

Indian camel man

May 18, 2011 – I met this old man and his camel at least three times during our stay in Jaipur. He worked alone and handled heavy loads while stuffing the camel cart with sacks. Back to “Photo of the day”

Compassion between species

May 17, 2011 – A poor woman sharing a pack of biscuits with a monkey female and her baby. Back to “Photo of the day”

May 16, 2011 – More than twenty poor pilgrims were resting in a secluded area from Lachman Jhula, not far from the river banks. I walked uninvited in the poor man’s house and they welcomed me with open arms. I felt ashamed to have brought the camera there and it seemed heavy and unnatural in my hands. It pained me to […]

Out of options

May 15, 2011 – Pilgrim sleeping on a concrete bench near the main street in Lachman Jhula (Rishikesh). Back to “Photo of the day”

Living on charity

May 14, 2011 – On the streets of Jaipur: a woman and her two kids asking tourists for money. Back to “Photo of the day”

Indian wedding

May 12, 2011 – Groom walking in the streets, surrounded by four women busy keeping him at all times under a colored fabric. I wanted to find more about this, but the people around me knew just enough English to confirm that what we were witnessing was a wedding ceremony. Back to “Photo of the day”
