Street Portraiture heaven: Back to photography

Street Faces
Steely determination, a loader at Khari Baoli

An early Sunday morning shoot on the streets of Old Delhi. Our focus to capture faces of the men who live and work there.

Khari Baoli is Asia’s largest wholesale market for spices. The air heavily laced with red-hot chillies, rich turmeric and very fragrant saffron. My sneeze rate of 1 atishoo per second soon broke the ice, and had even the most serious of these hard-working men giggling away.

Photographer friend and I were in street portraiture heaven. A multitude of facial features from men that came from across the country. Each face sharpened and refined by the harsh Delhi sun and the harsher life they lead.

Sunday morning was no holiday for them. As they waited their turn to load, unload or transport away whatever consignment came their way.
