When I photograph people, I try to capture gestures that are unpolluted by the knowledge of my presence. I think in western culture, people are very conscious of self-image and how we are perceived. This makes it difficult to capture that which isn't poised or premeditated. Yet, for whatever reason, the people in India appeared largely unaffected by the camera. When they did pose themselves, their expressions were subtler, humbler, and seemed to hold truer to their everyday identities. This all makes it beautifully easy to capture the humanity of a place.
