    So bright colors! It is amazing – for us a view like this is exotic, but for these children it is ordinary life…

      You read my mind. I was having the same thought. I’m still glad I’ve seen this image as it’s invoked something in me.

    I definitely miss India’s colorfulness

    Fabulous shot! you must have pinched yourself when you got this one. The landscape, the young boys stance, the beautiful colours and the portraiture in context. This has got to be one of my favourites for the year!!

    Most stylish couple you’ve ever photographed for this site, not even joking. Amazing.

    These photos of India are just gorgeous, it’s really so hard to pick a favorite…. the more I visit this blog, the more I realize how truly and totally hopeless I am with a camera (even a digital one)! Thank you, Scott, for sharing your work with us!

    This is a truly beautiful and unique shot. Well done. The colours are so vibrant against what appears to be a rather dusty and bleak background :)

    It’s a fascinating photograph. The detail in the children’s outfits is enjoyable, then the eye moves to the background details: The camel! And what are those people up to?!
    And I do love when The Sartorialist treats us with multiple uploads in one day.

    Please tag all your India pictures so this fan can pull them up in a group. So far only five of the India pictures are tagged ‘India.’ I want to browse them again and again without the interruption of pictures of other places and people. These pictures tell bigger stories than many of your others – your talent is to be credited but also your subject.

    This is just wonderful. It’s funny how many levels it works on: aesthetically, of course, but it also makes you think about how things are communicated in our world. The girl is wearing a look and a comfort with it that Western fashionistas would kill for, while the boy is sporting the codes of trendy young Westerners. Opposite sides of a coin, yet seamlessly integrated. It dazzles (my) mind.

    Oh, Pushkar kids! Not only cute, but also very sweet.

    Back in 2010 I was traveling there, and on a camel safari some kids came begging for school pens. We gave them what we had, and went our way. After a while one of them came running after us. What now, I thought. Turned out he was bringing me back my sunglasses, which I had dropped without noticing! I was so, so grateful. Not only I got back my favorite pair (and the only one I had for the trip), but also it was touching he ran a long way just to help.

    Lovely photo. Suggestion (not criticism): Have you thought about taking along a medium format film camera on your journeys for some of these types of photos? I think the results would be awesome.

    This is really one of my favorite photos here.

    Those are serious kids – gives me hope for the future.

    Also, curious about the camel’s headgear…

    Curiously it reminds me last Jay Z and Beyonce’s holidays in Europe…
    More seriously, after a first look, your photo made me think about woman condition in India, about man and woman’s roles in this society.
    Look at this little man-boy: dress in an occidental way, a lot of accessories (he has got things, he is the one who owns), he has an arm around the neck’s girl (protection, affection, but the gest can also mean “it’s mine” or “i take it”), he has no smile on her face, he is in his role, he is The guy. The girl is dressed in an traditionnal way,she owns nothing but her smile, she smile, se stands, she has her arms around her bellie, she is the constance, the woman. The picture is share into two parts: the side of the boy: boats, peaple, action…The side of the girl: tradition, camel, space. So i think about woman condition in India, about identity (man/woman), about modernism (and impacts in man/woman ‘s relations).
    That’s why i love your photo, she is an open door to reflexion, and she’s also full of innocence, because of course, there is only two innocent childs on it…But the spectator, in her own place, can sess other things in this part of reality that you bring to him.
    (Sorry for my bad english, i am french…)

      Funny, to me it also seems he looks like he ‘owns’ her. The girl is lovely though. Besides that I am always troubled by slaved animals. Those camels are tied up al day until people need them.

      that’s exactly what I thought. slipping into adult roles?

    I love the photo, however I am kind of confused as to what to think of the boy and girl. Seems like they are bf/gf but they look too young. Or is it just a western belief they are too young? They appear sophisticated well beyond their real age.

    They are not bf or gf in third country all people get older quickly because they life is very hard. I think they are cousins or siblings. such a great and touch photo!
