I am perhaps becoming more confrontational with my street portraits and this visage shows signs of some slight confusion over why I would want to capture his fine features.
I wonder if his response would be the same having his photo taken by Rajiv or by Mukul?
I suppose what I’m saying is that being a foreigner, do I get away with things that a local man may not?
It leads me to recall the time I was caught photographing some musicians on a train in Gujarat. They were very annoyed with me but the other passengers calmed them, saying, “He doesn’t understand!” Maybe what they really said was, “Take no notice he’s an ignorant foreigner!”
