It’s summertime and no one wants to read a whole bunch of words, so how about we whisk you off to Jodhpur and introduce you to the streets and the people of The Blue City? For your viewing pleasure, some of our best pics from this wonderful city in Rajasthan…
Onum is a festival celebrated in Kerala, India and it lasts two weeks. There’s no big culmination, it’s just a period of rest and reflection and for many life goes on as normal.
Captured here are people at work and hanging out around Cochin during this period.
In April of 2010 I went to visit the Dharavi slums of Mumbai. Twice. It was a most incredible experience and we really got to grips with the society and culture there. This is a large set of almost 100 images, all in different styles, documenting many aspects of the slums. For the record I’m a little uncomfortable using the word ‘slum’ as it’s both a little insulting and a misrepresentation of Dharavi.
This is the first of three sets from this country of contrasts. What is there to say about Eritrea that my photographs don’t already tell you? I can tell you that everyone I know who has visited Eritrea puts it up there as one of their favourite countries visited and I think it is perhaps my fave country of all time. It is the second poorest country in the world. Just remember that when you clock the amount of smiles captured here.
Suakin has to be seen to be believed. It is one reason why I took so many photographs of both people and buildings. Along the dusty road from the anchorage and old city lies the market, and behind the market, the residential area. The market is surrounded by wooden buildings that look more at home in The House of Fun, such is the angle at which they sit. It is the residential area, however, that really shocks. More buildings made of any scrap of cardboard, metal or wood have been cobbled together to provide some kind of shelter from the sun.
