Entry Description

I met this father with his two children by accident in Pushkar, Rajasthan. My driver and I had traveled about seven hours in the city and we were very tired. We had a drink, when this beautiful man asked me for some rupees. He is a beggar. There was this incredible charisma. Immediately I started to look for a background, a house wall or anything like that. I placed him in the shadow ; the sunlight from the opposite was the brightener. That’s all. I took four or five pictures, gave him some rupees and they went away.
