Old and New India

with 2 comments


In Jodhpur, India in 2006 I was in my favorite market street with my Canon dSLR. Among the many images recorded that day was this one.

I was taken by the fact that this single image seemed to symbolize where India was (and still is, I’d venture) – between two views of itself, between two worlds. Traditional India in a purple turban, looking back through millennia and India in a red motorcycle helmet, rushing into the 21st-Century.

Because the image was made in haste, the focus is on the middle and distance and not on the men, as it should have been. As it is far from technically perfect, I’ve never made it available in my studio. The other day, in the middle of a major cleaning project in my home office/studio, I came across it.

Darn, I still like it and so, decided share it with you here and now.

You can see more images from my Indian trips here on my website, http://www.annbrooks.net or in my studio at Art Works Downtown in San Rafael, California.

  1. Nice photo. Sometimes, technical perfection is not what matters. Emotions or opinions are more important.
