Back Lane of Rajkot

Back Lane of Rajkot


Other peoples lives often seem more interesting than our own, as do their homes. Is it just nosiness or inquisitiveness?

I like the details in this scene from the rough and tumbledown quality of the houses through to the cycles, men on ladders and strolling stranger.

Yet I feel like a Peeping Tom. I can excuse myself on the basis that I am making a photographic record. That this is social documentary, and that I am making a statement about the visual qualities; the textures, composition, colours.

In reality I am seeking out poverty, because poverty is more photogenic than is my neighbourhood…….these are specimens…..
