Monsoon Portrait

Dharavi: monsoon portrait

Directly behind me are a family of 4, plus 2 team members conducting the interview, plus ~6 kids from the neighbourhood crammed into a 6 meter square home. Whilst outside the monsoon rains arrive with irregular regularity to wash away any hope of staying dry. And amongst it all – this kid stands observing the scene, one of the few from the neighbourhood who didn’t play up to the camera, willing, yet obviously nervous.

Every one of these people, participants, subjects, I wonder where they are now, how their lives have turned out.
