alexsohphotographyThis picture was taken at Dhoby Ghaut, a man made laundry factory in Bombay India.
I was walking around alone at these washing spaces, this drank man came to me and shouted "photo photo!" I turned around and why not, I started photographing him and he gave me a few funny looks and than he went to pulled his mother over and wanting me to take another photo of him with his mother. We must understand that the people living in this area are the low income families, and talking about having a photo taken of themselves could be an expansive act.
So I asked this man, I said "oh your mother?" He shook his head (you know how his action like right?) and happily said yes yes! And I asked him again, "you love your mother?" He shook his head again "yes sir". You must know this man is drank...., and I could smell his alcohol under bright daylight. Than I added on, if you love your mom, would you give her a kiss? He turned around with no hesitation and gave his mom a kissed right away! You can see the uneasy reaction of his mom and all the people there while laughing at him. That's not the India culture to kiss openly btw hahaha.
I hope we don't have to wait till we are drank in order to show love and affection to someone we love.
That same day I sent these photos of those whom I have photographs to devolved into prints. The following day, I went back to Dhoby Ghaut and passed these people their pictures! Some kids where so happy, they grabbed their photos and run all the way home to show their parents. Everyone were so happy to see themselves on a photo print.
Photographers out there, you could be the next person to put a smell on someone face. Try it! Captured with your heart.
