I was reviewing three photographs that I took of this woman in South India, determining which one I would select for a future post. I couldn’t decide. The more I studied the portraits, the more the range of emotions that each one conveyed drew me in. I think that it makes for an interesting study as a whole. I wonder what you think and what you see.
The portraits are arranged in the order they were photographed. I know this woman casually. She wasn’t surprised that I stopped to talk to her or to take her photograph. In fact, she relished the attention and enjoyed being in the spotlight for a change.
Each one of us has so many “faces,” so many moods, so many expressions, so many views, all open to interpretation. I do love the vast range of human expression. Capturing it from behind the lens is a challenge, a responsibility, a privilege and most of the time fun. Mostly, I make friends along the way.
