L’histoire de Bilji, le Hijra de Kathputli Colony | Serge Bouvet, photographe

L’histoire de Bilji, le Hijra de Kathputli Colony | Serge Bouvet, photographe | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it
Photo report's insight:

Les bracelets roses de Bilji s’entrechoquent lorsqu’elle allume sa deuxième cigarette. Elle tire une taffe. Engoncée dans son pashmînâ pourpre qu’elle ne porte que pendant les fraîcheurs matinales, Bilji fait figure d’un chef sioux. Un chef sioux orné de bijoux de femmes.
Des volutes de fumée de tabac remontent à la surface de ses souvenirs.

« J’appartenais à la « famille » Kinar Bhadur Gad.» raconte Bilji en tapotant de son gros index noueux sa cigarette pour en faire tomber la cendre.
« J’ai rejoint le foyer de mon guru-ji, quand j’avais 16 ans. Mes parents ne m’ont pas retenu quand je suis parti rejoindre ma nouvelle famille. »

La plupart des habitants du bidonville sont issus d’une grande famille originaire du Rajasthan. Bijli est née à New Delhi. Son père, d’origine modeste, faisait bouillir la marmite familiale en vendant du thé.

India stray dogs | Photographer: Serge Bouvet

India stray dogs | Photographer:  Serge Bouvet | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

English:
"No country has as many stray dogs as India, and no country suffers as much from them. Free-roaming dogs number in the tens of millions and bite millions of people annually, including vast numbers of children. An estimated 20,000 people die every year from rabies infections — more than a third of the global rabies toll."

 - Serge BouvetFrançais: 
"Chaque année, 30.000 personnes meurent chaque année de la rage en Inde (70% des décès dans le monde) à cause de la morsure de chiens parias. Il est estimé qu’en Inde, une personne meurt de la rage à tous les 30 minutes. Environ 70% des victimes sont des enfants de moins de 15 ans."- Serge Bouvet

Brittany Ortiz's curator insight, November 12, 2014 5:34 PM

So sad to see and hear how many stray dogs there are. I was very surprised when I read that India has more stray dogs than most. I would have thought differently, but even with the number of stray dogs I would definitely want to be cautious about knowing the boundaries in abusing/wanting to stop rabies from spreading. Although no one can really stop dogs from breeding and having more puppies, it would be important to maybe start a free vet clinic for the dogs that are in need. I mean by looking at the photo right there, its very sad to see what is going on. Although, I know that it is a struggle already for people in India to feed there families, imagine how the animals are trying to feed for there own. So sad.

Le tabou de la retouche photo en France | Photographe : Serge Bouvet

Le tabou de la retouche photo en France | Photographe : Serge Bouvet | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"En France, retoucher une photographie est devenue un tabou voire un sacrilège. En ce qui me concerne, sachant que la photo ne sera jamais garante de la transparence du réel, je considère ces controverses sacralisante un peu vaine. Explications(...)"


"(...) Les chiens de garde de la photographie pure, de la photographie objective existait déjà. Parlons-en de ces pourfendeurs de la photographie dite objective. Une certaine caste de photographes a pour dogme que retoucher une photo nuit à l’objectivité. Allons bons ! Et que les photographes qui retravaillent les clichés sont considérés comme des escamoteurs du réel. Si j’en observe l’histoire de la photographie, force est de croire que la polémique sur le sujet n’a pas désenflé puisque le travail quotidien allait et va toujours à l’encontre de ce débat immuable. En effet, dès l’introduction de la photographie dans la presse, au XIXe siècle, les journalistes ont toujours travaillé l’image. L’intervention a posteriori sur le document photographique est attestée dès les débuts de la photographie.(...)


"(...)Je soupçonne ces chiens de garde de la photographie « sans retouche » de souffrir du complexe du bon photographe qui ne rate jamais sa photo. Combien de fois, n’ai-je pas lu dans certains magazines français cette expression  “photo sans retouche” comme d’un label de qualité indiscutable. Pour moi, cela  vise essentiellement à garantir un certain niveau de qualité technique, en signifiant une maîtrise absolu de l’outil pour éviter le recours à des expédients comme Photoshop ou Lightroom. Il laisse par ailleurs sous entendre l’existence d’un photographe parfait, d’un démiurge absolu de l’image reproduite. Allez dire ça à Steve Mc Curry ou Ami Vitale pour qui la post-production, la retouche sont essentielles.(...)" - Serge Bouvet

Sadhûs | Photographer: Serge Bouvet

Sadhûs | Photographer: Serge Bouvet | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

In Hinduism, sadhu is a common term for an ascetic or someone who practices yoga. Sadhus have given up trying to achieve the first three Hindu goals of life: kama (enjoyment), artha (practical objectives) and even dharma (duty). The sadhu is solely dedicated to achieving moksha (liberation) through meditation and contemplation of God. Sadhus often wear ochre-colored clothing, as a symbol that they have given up many things in life.

Serge Bouvet present some portraits of these particular hindouists.

AIDS in India | Photojournalist: Leah Nash

AIDS in India | Photojournalist: Leah Nash | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"In India, where sex is taboo and AIDS/HIV carries a heavy stigma, infection rates have grown to epidemic proportions. Major forms of transmission include blood transfusions, men who have sex with men, and intravenous drug users. However, by far, the highest infection rates are due to heterosexual sex.

Second only to Africa, the numbers were predicted to reach 10 million by 2010. Yet, it is still an issue that most of India is not talking about and that most of the world does not know.This story was made possible by a Fulbright Grant." - Leah Nash

L’Inde, à tombeau ouvert | Serge Bouvet, photographe reporter | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

En Inde, s’il y a bien une chose à laquelle le voyageur occidentale doit se méfier à tout point de vue, pour sa sécurité, disons-le pour sa vie, c’est la route. Depuis 2008, les ventes de véhicules ont bondi de concert avec les accidents de la route. Je l’ai appris à mes dépends, à Jodhpur ou Jaipur, j’ai manqué d’être écrasé deux fois, d’être encorné par une vache une fois et en outre j’ai failli perdre tout mon matériel photo suite au passage d’un fou furieux en autorickshaw.

60 millions d’enfants au travail en Inde | photographe reporter : Serge Bouvet | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it
Photo report's insight:

(...)

 

" La petite fille marchait penchée en avant, la tête baissée, comme une vieille; le poids du bidon tendait et raidissait ses bras maigres; de temps en temps elle était forcée de s’arrêter, et chaque fois qu’elle s’arrêtait elle regardait son bidon comme un prisonnier regarderait son boulet. Cela se passait à Jaipur, en Inde, en mars 2012, loin de tout regard humain compatissant; c’était une enfant de 6 ans.

 

Hélas, l’Inde détient toujours ce triste record du monde : du plus grand nombre d’enfants travailleurs.  Les ONG estiment en effet que l’Inde compte près de 60 millions d’enfants au travail. Ils sont collecteurs de bouteilles, de plastique, chiffonnier dans les bidonvilles,   vendeurs de journaux, ramasseurs de poubelles, cireurs de chaussures,  serveurs dans les dabahs, employés de maison comme cette fille que j’ai photographié avec son bidon d’eau…" - Serge Bouvet

Kathputli colony | Serge Bouvet, photographe reporter | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Kathputli Colony is a tinsel slum. Over 600 artists from here have represented India in several fairs and festivals abroad. About 800 families have settled here since Independence. Magicians, acrobats, mime artists, puppeteers, jugglers, folk singers, snake charmers, bear handlers, monkey trainers and other street performers reside in this colony. A visit to the colony is enough to believe that Shadipur Depot is perhaps the only place in Delhi where the ancient tradition of magic is preserved and inherited.

Most of the artists are from UP, Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra. Kathputli Colony is also called by other names: Kalakaron ki Basti, Madari colony and Bazeegarcolony.

Blue City | Photographer: Steve McCurry

Blue City | Photographer: Steve McCurry | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"I've been going back to this visual ancient quarter of Jodhpur for probably 20 years, and I know that area very well, I must have photographed every street. But there was one corner that I realised had potential for an interesting composition with these hand prints on the wall.

 

"It was a major thoroughfare with people coming and going. I was photographing people coming towards me and away from me and there were a number of really interesting pictures. In fact I went back there the next day. And as I was editing, I realised that one of these pictures which I hadn't really remembered taking was one of this boy running and I caught him in kind of mid-leap, it just had this kind of wonderful decisive moment to it. I was very pleased with that picture."-Steve McCurry spoked about Jodhphur photographies.

 

JODHPUR
Jodhpur is the second largest city in the Indian state of Rajasthan. It is located 335 kilometres  west from the state capital, Jaipur and 200 kilometres  from the city of Ajmer. It was formerly the seat of a princely state of the same name, the capital of the kingdom known as Marwar. Jodhpur is a popular tourist destination, featuring many palaces, forts and temples, set in the stark landscape of the Thar desert. The city is known as the "Sun City" for the bright, sunny weather it enjoys all year. It is also referred to as the "Blue City" due to the blue-painted houses around the Mehrangarh Fort. The old city circles the fort and is bounded by a wall with several gates. However, the city has expanded greatly outside the wall over the past several decades. Jodhpur lies near the geographic centre of Rajasthan state, which makes it a convenient base for travel in a region much frequented by tourists.

Old Delhi | Photographer: Lana Slezic

Old Delhi | Photographer: Lana Slezic | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

In the memories of my youth, my park is a treasured place. The trees are old and tall, their branches blotted with bursts of electric green. The wooden benches are worn and scratched with the initials of love-struck teenagers. In autumn, the crackling, sun-burnt leaves are so plentiful that the grass disappears.

 

My park is a safe place, one where I leave my mother behind, as I dash up the dirt path in search of adventure. Confidence builds in the sandbox and laughter hides behind the trees. In my park, the swings are the center of the universe. The street kids I photographed in Old Delhi call the place where they live “the park.” Not a strand of grass has the misfortune of growing there.

 

The ground reeks of urine and burning rubbish. Sniffing glue is the center of this world. Shoeless children play happily in the scorched dirt, flicking marbles for money so they can eat, their tummies grumbling with hunger. This park bears no resemblance to that of my youth. Somewhere in the cloud of that disparity I quiver in fear—fear that change will never come to these children.

Last Days of the Rickshaw  | Photographer :Ami Vitale | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

The strategy of drivers in Kolkata—drivers of private cars and taxis and buses and the enclosed three-wheel scooters used as jitneys and even pedicabs—is simple: Forge ahead while honking. There are no stop signs to speak of. To a visitor, the signs that say, in large block letters, OBEY TRAFFIC RULES come across as a bit of black humor. During a recent stay in Kolkata, the method I devised for crossing major thoroughfares was to wait until I could attach myself to more pedestrians than I figured a taxi was willing to knock down. (Feature article on : http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2008/04/kolkata-rickshaws/calvin-trillin-text)

The New Delhi, Bangla Sahib Gurudwara (or Sikh Temple) is amazing. And like all Sikh Gurudwaras they feed the less fortunate daily. On the weekends the Bangla Sahib can feed over 10,000 people a day. One unique feature about this Gurudwara is that the water at the site is said to have healing properties. So you can see pilgrims lining up to drink the water or families bathing in the large pool. I hope I have been able to capture some of this for you in this short photo documentary.

Monsoon | Photojournalism: Steve McCurry

Monsoon | Photojournalism: Steve McCurry | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"I was eleven years old when I saw a photo essay on the monsoon in India in Life Magazine by Brian Brake, the New Zealand-born Magnum photographer.

His work established his reputation as a master color photoessayist. Twenty years later, I proposed a story to National Geographic to photograph the monsoon. The next year I joined Magnum Photos.

People have often asked me what it was like spending almost a year photographing the monsoon. I spent several months following the monsoon which affects half the people on the planet.

Weather is often my best ally as I try to capture the perfect mood for my pictures, but photographing the monsoon was an experience that taught me a lot about patience and humility.

 

Photographing in heavy rain is difficult because you have to constantly wipe the rain drops from the camera lens. That takes about a third of the time. Monsoon rain is accompanied by winds that try to wrestle away the umbrella that is wedged between my head and shoulders.

I spent four days, in a flooded city in Gujarat, India, wading around the streets in waist-deep water that was filled with bloated animal carcasses and other waste material. The fetid water enveloped me leaving a greasy film over my clothes and body. Every night when I returned to my flooded hotel, empty except for a nightwatchman, I bathed my shriveled feet in disinfectant.

 

Once I was almost sucked down into one of the holes in the street in Bombay into which water was rushing. It took every bit of my strength to keep from losing my balance. After that close call, I shuffled along, inch by inch, yard by yard, until I had to abandon my cautious instincts.

I had to see the monsoon as a predictable yearly event, and not the disaster it seemed to my western eyes. The farmers experience the monsoon as an almost religious experience as they watch their fields come back to life after being parched for half the year.

 

When I was in Porbundar, the historic birthplace of Gandhi, I came upon a dog. There he was, locked out of the house, standing on a tiny piece of concrete as the flood waters rose. His expression betrayed his emotions. You can tell by the picture that he realizes his predicament and hope his owner opens the door soon.

Actually, a moment after I took the picture, the door opened and he ran inside."- Steve Mccurry

Only a hundred miles from Kolkata, but immersed in a jungle in which time seems to stand still, a Jesuit missionary group has expanded the meaning of being called “parents”.

In its mission “Jisu Ashram” hosts over a hundred children from families of agriculturists of lower castes. There are a thousand children and parents to represent the only hope for the future of a new generation of young Indians who are suffering, with concealed virulence, an abrupt transition to the modern era, the era of big cities, which work in the field and differ little from slavery.

Mumbai Sleeping | Photography: Dhruv Dhawan

Mumbai Sleeping | Photography: Dhruv Dhawan | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

I began photographing Mumbai Sleeping in the summer of 2009 to explore the diversity of a basic human experience such as sleep. I was in awe of the taxi drivers in particular who slept in such a romantic balance with their vehicles after leaving their families in the rural parts of India to make a living in the city of dreams. 

I was also motivated by the opportunity to photograph people while they are unaware of the camera and to remove the politics of the pose from my images. In this sense I liked to believe I was capturing portraits of the unconscious. 

Of the few people that awoke while I was photographing them, no one objected to my actions after I explained what I was doing. I remain ever grateful to India and its people that allow artists to capture real life without the politics of consent.

Over 350 images later I still find myself compelled to document this phenomena of urbanization in the 21st century where space has become so scarce in a city like Mumbai that 'private' acts are often conducted in public. Mumbai Sleeping is a testament to the strength and human spirit of the lower class urban population that drive the wheel of the city by day and sleep on it at night - forcing us to question whether a good night’s sleep is a luxury or a necessity.

Debbie Lynch's curator insight, January 26, 4:24 PM

Dhru Dhawan's photographic investigation of the sleeping night life of Mumbai is intriguing. By exploring a basic human need, sleep, he captures  his subjects with intimacy. His motivation to "photograph people while they are unaware of the camera and to remove the politics of the pose from my images" results in stark images never seen before. One interesting quote he makes is that after "Over 350 images later I still find myself compelled to document this phenomena of urbanization in the 21st century where space has become so scarce in a city like Mumbai that 'private' acts are often conducted in public. Mumbai Sleeping is a testament to the strength and human spirit of the lower class urban population that drive the wheel of the city by day and sleep on it at night - forcing us to question whether a good night’s sleep is a luxury or a necessity." I think this statement says much about the motivations of the modern world and how we view "necessities when faced with few options.

Sadhus | Travel photographer: David Graham -

Sadhus | Travel photographer: David Graham - | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

In 2010, London-based photographer David Graham traveled to Haridwar, India to photograph the Kumbh Mela festival, the largest gathering on the planet for a religious purpose. There he captured portraits of Sadhus, the wandering holy men of India.

Photo report's insight:

"

“I attended the Kumbh Mela in Haridwar, Northern India in 2010. Everywhere there were thousands of Sadhus going about their daily lives. There were numerous campsites spread out over a very large area. Different groups stay within their own compounds. Some seemed more spiritual and organized than others.

 

“As the day progresses you see many mass dinings and religious assemblies and tens of thousands of people seemingly wandering around aimlessly. I particularly remember the incessant noise of competing preachers over loud speakers. It was also incredibly dusty from the thousands wandering around.

 

“As you approach the bathing points, thousands are being corralled towards the river and it can take several hours to reach the front where you change, bathe and immerse yourself in the Ganges. Everywhere you look is colourful, entertaining and often very funny. I asked to photograph someone in the middle of the main street of the town and without asking he just took his clothes off.”- David Graham
