In a small unknown and forgotten corner of the developing world, surviving with some of the poorest people on earth, a young Dalit girl smiles. She wanted to smile and be in every photo I made there; her real feelings though, lie deep within her eyes. A Repost from 2013, but this pictures deserves, more than almost any of mine, not to be forgotten. From a photographic perspective, a flawed portrait of mine in lots of ways. But none of that really matters at all. Whatever happened to this lovely little human being I will never know… Please pray for peace and happiness in our world.
A bag of onions for a portrait seemed a great trade while wandering around the shops one morning. I was with my friend and we sat and had a chat with this nice lady before I shot this single frame! Telangana, India, 2014
After a long day in the classroom, a little boy sits patiently waiting for the school mistress to finish her lesson. Children of a similar age in western schools would be more engaged in playing activities but here, ABC and 123 rule. Hyderabad, India, 2013
