New Delhi Family

    Newer Older

    I took over a hundred pictures of thousands of poor and destitute around India. I usually gave 100 rupees after I took the shot, but the tough part is was when dozens of kids descended on me whenever I pulled out the money.

      I always wonder why photographers from west always take only such portraits. This actually reinforces the false impression about India as a poor and mysterious land of beggers, snakes and elephants. Yes, many people actually think so and worse things if they are as ignorant as Bob. When such snaps actually may help to create awareness about certain issues in India, it is responsibility of photographers of Trey's calibre to showcase the other progressive, opulent , developed face of India to the world which lives in ignorance. I hope Marnie strikes the right balance !

      ha ha, you "took over a hundred pictures of tousands (of people?)" that would mean you'd have to see atleast 10 people in every shot to equal 1000 heads from only 100 shots. I'm just being harsh, i'm really jealous you lived/visited in India. I can't wait to be there someday.

      It's ok, at least you helped many children while you were there and did what you could, you brightened up their day and they will remember your kindness...oh and I love this shot...<3

      Good picture with a wrong caption.

      It is just "One New Delhi Family" and not "New Delhi Family". Your caption could be mistaken that all families in New Delhi are living in such poverty which is false.

      It would be similar to taking a picture of a homeless couple at a stop light in Austin and giving it a caption "Austin Family".

      Last thing a developing country needs is bad publicity.

      You are a fantastic landscape photographer!
