The Stare

The Stare


The Theyyam Festival in Kotalli in Kerala was a high spot of our 2014 visit, and this portrait was unusual insofar as everyone else was facing the other way and looking at the fun at the back. This young woman, though, seemed to want to stare into the lens. I’m glad that she did.

    • Thanks Peter. I’m never sure how to frame or crop such busy locations and more often than not will cut out all the surroundings to focus on the portrait, so this, for me, was going against the grain.
