Photographer's Note

I remain in northeastern India in 2009. This is nothing artistic, nothing composed, nobody posing, in fact just a crowd of people looking like they're trying hard to ignore my camera. Only the man in the striped blue shirt, just left of the centre, seems to be watching me, having nothing better to do while waiting for a train to pass.

I took this picture in the centre of Guwahati city, Assam state. Like other pedestrians I could just ignore the barrier that stopped the cars and motorbikes, then just turned around to take this picture of the patiently waiting crowd.

Looking at this now I think this photo would not have been possible a few decades ago. Then everybody would have been staring at the foreigner with the camera. India is changing.

If you want to see more people waiting for a train in Guwahati, take a look at the workshop.
