Paraganj by Murray Newham


Available to buy on…

The Paraganj bazaar in New Delhi.. we happened to arrive in a once a year Sikh festival.. by nightfall there was sword-fighting in the streets.. I love this shot because like everywhere in India, there’s always faces at every turn.. and I love the faces in this shot, from the guys at the front, to the bystanders in the shadows..

    So rich in character and atmosphere, Murray
    and that ubiquitous earthiness that is India…
    So lucky to have been there …

    there’s too much unquiet in the air,. textures create a really tense mood as if something’s going to happen… stunning work.
