Photographer's Note

A very sad fact of life and sobering sight

I noticed this helpless vagrant or even desperate whilst on a walk in Jaipur and to everybody else he seemed completely invisible. I took it very quickly as I didn’t want to intrude too much with that big fella in the foreground to show the contrast between him going nowhere right now and life passed without him even noticing. A simple shot among one of the photos that left a big impression on me, despite a fast growing economy in India, not everyone benefits from it.

A shot to generate thought and emotion which you may find it distasteful and perhaps not your cuppa..

Just to strike a right balance between 'Ugliness and Beauty' in travel photography.
