  • Indian vistors to the Taj Mahal. India, October 2010

    In this series of portraits we see a cross-section of contemporary Indian society as they are photographed by family members or local photographers. The vast majority of visitors to the Taj Mahal are Indian citizens. Rich or poor, young or old, they are as eager as any western tourist to be photographed in front of the world’s best known monument to love. The universal appeal of photography is reflected in the poses and attitudes of the subjects and their desire to preserve the moment in a photograph. Agra, India, October 2010
