I spent a few days in a small town in southern India, intrigued by life there; its pace, its proximity, its passion, its colour, its richness, its ferver. The town really was tiny and within a couple of days faces became familiar and habits developed.
I befriended a group of women who worked at the central fish market and after spending time shooting their portraits I decided to see if I could have them printed to return to them as gifts. After some time and perseverance I managed to locate a printer a few towns away who actually produced some rather wonderful prints. I shared them with the ladies in the fish market and they were completely blown-away. News travelled like wildfire and I spent the rest of the day shooting yet more portraits of everyone in the town and sending them to be printed.
I love how the act of celebrating one another, crossed boundaries of communication and understanding and ultimately allowed us all to connect.
