Photographer's Note

I spent 4 days in Gingee, hoping the end of the rain.
I used to go at the bus stand, very crowdy in this village, expecting for shot opportunities.
This little girl belongs to a family who stays all along the day in the bus stand for begging.
I never give money to kids, so the first time she came to me, maybe she have been disapointed, but quickly she showed big interest to my camera.


I took a snap and showed her the LCD screen.
Joyfullness.
All along theese 4 days, she came to me, in the crowd, from time to time;
sometimes alone, sometimes with another sister or friends, never to ask for money.
I felt her little hand pulling my tee shirt, and she was here asking for a new portrait, looking at me in her own way, half interrogative, half curiosity.
And, after looking at the screen, she flew away, like a little bird...until the next time.
After leaving Gingee, I miss her some days, even today writing this note...
