Mumbai street photo 2001

Into the light

In 2001 I was in India with a few mates on a pilgrimage to the Maha Kumbh Mela amongst other things…

In those short 6 weeks we travelled a lot and eventually got to Mumbai.

I was like a photojournalist without a commission.  Taking street photos in the guise of Henri-Cartier Bresson.

This was one of those moments (decisive?) when instinct tells me to spin around and quickly shoot without the boys noticing.  The focus is a little out as I was using a manual film based Nikon but the photo still stands out.

Two boys enjoying each others company as they stride to a well lit future with open doors.
