The Stone Collector


The guy who is throwing stones is a labor in Bholaganj stone mining area. His duty is to collect stones from the boat in shortest possible time. It was very hypnotic to watch the way he was throwing stones, none of those were getting scattered. It was obvious that he was doing it for such a long period of time that his body adopted a rhythmic motion which generated consistent pattern of placing the stones in limited space. You can see I was sitting just infront of him without feeling any risk. If I had to do the job, I would have probably injured people nearby.
