Congratulations to charley5 for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 11 votes - View Previous Winners


I have made a few visits to a remote mountain village in the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. I am slowly making friends with its inhabitants. They appreciate that I bring prints to them, and I appreciate their great authenticity. They make wonderful subjects, because there is very little artifice involved. The last time I was there, I used an open window to frame my shots. The results are below.

(What I particularly appreciate are the hands of the fellow in picture 2. He obviously has done much manual work in his life.)

Thanks,

-Charles

Your photos show that wherever you go in the world, people are the same.

Thanks for shooting.

Human beings are all the same on the level of their humanity. Their cultures and thinking can be quite different.

Thanks so much for noticing. There is an inherent innocence there, but I like to think I have a good connection based on my nature, which is generally gentle and respectful. It helps that I bring them prints as well.

What's really amazing about this photos is that the subjects are all strangers to you. You managed to convince them all to pose. They are all excellent portraits too, in my opinion.
