Title of Photograph: The Power of Concentration

Photographer: Ankit Jain

 

Description: This photograph depicts a group of children studying by a kerosene lamp. The beauty in this photograph does not lie in the quality but rather in the lack of it. The underexposed photograph represents the lack of access to energy and the loss of shadow detail makes it as hard for the viewer to see the contours as it is for the school children to study altogether. As it is often the same people who lack access to improved water sources, sanitation and energy, the children in this photograph stand out in their strong determination to pursue an education.
