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.
