meeting in the classroom by 

students becoming social workers on their final night at a bangalore institute.

in india, women are not supposed to take initiative to start a relationship. for the majority of young women, their marriage partners are selected by their parents. lots of women suffer atrocities over dowry matters. there are only a few well educated women who withdraw themselves from this social dynamic. did i spot one moment of a breaking point or is it my imagination and interpretation?

experimenting with long shutter speed. camera handheld.

    I am enjoying looking at you work Mojo, it has a difference to it, which is good lol.

    One thing I am looking forward to is seeing some of your old film work.

  • thanks for your encouragement andrew. being not very well versed in computer technology, i have to rely on others to install the scanner…. and that might still need a lot of persuasion…. :-(
    maybe your comment makes me liberate myself in this respect… ;-)

    I like the way the blur adds so much atmosphere!

  • thanks for your comment, mel. the situation painted itself blurred and with this blur revealed something that was at the time not visible to me as a passing photographer.

    what a charged photograph – i want to know what is written behind them, who they are. . . wonderful how the blur makes them seem more real somehow.

  • they are two students becoming social workers at their final presentation night at a bangalore institute. they have decorated the blackboard behind them themselves and they are wearing their best clothes.
    the blur does add something like a layer of emotion…
    i am happy you noticed this picture.
