One of the things I was excited about doing when I went to India was street shooting. I was admittedly trepidatious about doing so on my own. I spoke to a photographer friend of mine, Penny de los Santos and of course she had a fixer for me. Fixers are an essential for photographers traveling around the world who need access to certain areas. Penny is such a photographer. With clients like National Geographic and Saveur Magazine, she is used to setting up fixers in different countries and navigating her way through each assignment that she is given. I am not such a photographer (although I remain constantly envious) so I was delighted and relieved when Penny introduced me to Vineet Modi. Vineet guided me all around the streets of old Delhi. He’s also a photographer, so he was patient with me and very encouraging of me to interact with the people I met on the street. For some reason, I ended up doing a lot of quick portraits. This is pretty unusual because I am so used to shooting on the fly and capturing moments. While I have many photos of life happening on the streets of Old Delhi, here is a sampling of my favorite portraits:
Thank you again, Vineet for such a fun day!
