I took this photo on the very last day of my two week trip to India at the end of last year.
I was exhausted by the end of the trip. I had been out shooting all day and I was ready to turn back to the hotel – but when I turned the corner and saw this young man dressed in all black, covered in coal and sporting a haircut worthy of Guido Palau – the energy I had been rapidly loosing rushed back through me.
It’s a photo I like to look back on now. It reminds me to keep pushing myself and to keep looking for that next thing I might stumble upon around an unassuming corner.
