I shot this portrait during my visit to Goa in the November of 2009. At about 6 ‘o clock in the evening, he was on his way home after a hard day in the seas, fishing. He reminds me of a gentleman I’d shot in Maharashtra, half a decade ago. I see many similarities in indigenous people from the west coast of India.

Canon AE-1P, f/1.8, 1/60, Kodak T400CN – 35mm film.

  5. Something abt the grandeur in the lilt of his head made me scroll back to this picture again and again. The credit goes to you the photographer of course, in capturing something surreal that I can’t seem to put into words quite fitting as yet.

    I was pondering over the photographer him/her-self.. but the blog had not much to reveal. Should I suppose mach 3 means the razor for men? [bad joke I suppose.. kindly excuse]
