    She looks like a queen in repose. It has movement like a renaissance painting.

      It is taken at the camel fair. I have known this lady for years, you would cry and pitty yourselves if you hear her lifestyle. It is actually part of real India, no doubt.

      It is actually taken at the camel fair. I have known that girl and the other two for years. I can tell you this is a very hard life, most of us would be crying for what they are through everyday, specially guys like us westerners.
      That is actually real India, tribal people.

          Really beautiful photos Escalante. But are those people that much in a horrifying situation ? The pictures does not show this, they all seem to be proud and beautiful people instead. Their life maybe hard, but as for gypsies in other part of the world, their freedom is their more cherished possession. From my own little experience, I’ve lived for two months in a squatted hotel in the South of France, in the beginning of the 90s. There were some gypsies families from Bosnia there. As far as I can tell, though extremely poor, these people were not desperate at all. Especially kids all seemed really lively !

          Gypsy people in Rajasthan here too :

    thank you for posting this photo
    I like to think that you took my previous comment seriously regarding the two Indian ladies
    performing for your camera! hence the classically seated lady photographed against the same background! yet that particular comment of mine has not been published on your blog! I would like to know why that is?
    I put much thought in writing to you, and I do not consider your photo journalistic efforts light heartedly, please do not sensor thoughts and ideas, particularly when individuals invest time in engaging with you and the audience in a reasonably intelligent and thought provoking way! thank you

    This series in India is my favorite of all your work so far. Each image is not only beautiful, but also has so many layers of possible meaning, and so many questions that go with it, at least for me…
    One thing I thought of with this one is the contrast between a very decorative and gorgeous approach to dressing in what appears to be much less formal surroundings. I am always taken with this kind of photo from other parts of the world, where it seems the subjects take so much care with their appearance in spite of (or because of?) the appearance of the setting. There are of course plenty of drab places in North America but also some extremely decorated spaces, both indoor and outdoor, and I am often interested to see, for example, a group of people in sweats or hockey jerseys, or whatever, lounging in the lobby of some hotel from the 1910s, all restored to it’s original glory. The contrast can sometimes be startling.

    Don’t forget to get some photos of the tourists….you’ll also get some REAL characters! I saw a white girl with the thickest longest dreadlocks I have EVER seen. Don’t forget to check out the Hanuman Temple in Pushkar….that place is crawling with 100,000 monkeys! Watchout for your bag, cameras, FOOD….they WILL steal it. Wishing you a crazy amazing continuation… =)

    Sorry, but I find I’m not enjoying this blog recently. Mr. Schuman, if people write that they are offended by the “untouchable”-caption, why not simply change it? If people are hurt and confused by the pictures you post and request clarification, why don’t you do them the favor? Do you not care at all what your readers think? I used to love your blog, reading your posts daily, but just now, I’m pretty disappointed and I’m starting to wonder whether I was wrong about you…

    That dark red lipstick really looks great. Its weird how natural she looks dressed so boldly, with such vivid make up, and yet she looks so natural, against the bland background. I don’t think that made sense, but I tried to put it into words.

    Some woman have glamour no matter what the circumstances. And she is a fine example. Even her demeanour is sophisticated.

    My mother is from a poor country (as Ireland was at the time). But in the photos of her and her friends glamour abounds. They all knew how to sew, and did it well. Hollywood movies kept them up to date.

    She is so classically beautiful she may have come from another age. Her body is so relaxed. Why don’t we see postures like this in America?

    I like her style and attitude. This photo has a story about the women’s power in a poor world. She is simple, natural but her face is wow. Her face shows the waman who she became. She has the power and I like it!
