The road to Delhi

Red Sari and Blue Door

I spent 48 hours in Delhi India which is a world of contradictions. Overcrowded and loud, traffic zips by you at breakneck speed, or is at a complete standstill. Driving seems tactile: all flashing headlights and blaring horns mixed in with a little dare-devil-may-care attitude. Brand new, high tech architecture rises out of dirty, broken-down streets. And yet there are moments of complete serenity.

I am a Cinematographer and still photographer. My favorite places are behind a camera or in front of a big screen.

  1. I was right behind Jeff when he took this picture. There was something so surreal about this scene, it was gritty and serendipitous. This rendering captures that moment in exquisite detail.

    The two men behind the woman are Hindu Sikhs, and this was their home or temple or something. They were super nice and quiet people who waved and smiled at us, almost posed for us without a word spoken

    In India, when people saw us and the lens they sort quietly stopped and stared deeply into the glass. They seemed to get so lost in it, such that they became still and peaceful to photograph.
