Le Rajasthan 2D | Fine Art: Serge Bouvet

Le Rajasthan 2D | Fine Art: Serge Bouvet | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

English
Nothing better reflects the strangeness of a people when we the environment in which he lives. So I decided to import a part of India in Europe, framed in a bus shelter or ad showcase to create an open-air museum. Sometimes it coexists funny interaction between the two dimensions. I realized this project is written like poetry. These photos are a poetry of Rajasthan.

 

French
Rien ne reflète mieux l’étrangeté d'un peuple que le cadre dans lequel il vit. Alors, j'ai décidé d'importer une partie de l'Inde en Europe, encadré dans un abribus ou panneau publicitaire européen pour créer un musée à ciel ouvert. Quelque fois, coexiste une interaction entre les deux dimensions. Photographier un peuple, c’est rendre compte de quelque chose que l’on a vu et qui mérite de sortir du cadre personnel, je l'ai fait en espérant y injecter de la poésie.

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

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

People of Rajasthan | Travel photographer: Serge Bouvet

People of Rajasthan | Travel photographer: Serge Bouvet | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Wherever Serge Bouvet go, it is invariably the people who reveal most about Rajasthan. 

Rajasthan is so vast and full of variety that even the Indians don’t get to see the whole of it, let alone the tourists. You have to visit the place to know it. However, the travel photographers like Serge Bouvet give you a good idea of how the place looks and how it should feel like. It also helps you to decide what places you want to visit when you are planning a trip to India.

 

Serge Bouvet have collected a number of photographs which capture the colorful glimpses of the daily life in India. These photos give you a broader view of the people and cultural heritage of Rajasthan.

Last Days of the Rickshaw | Photographer :Ami Vitale

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)

New Delhi | Travel Photographer: Matt Brandon

New Delhi | Travel Photographer: Matt Brandon | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

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.

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.

10% growth. Small traders represent 96% of the dsitribution in India. They supply nearly 300 millions consumers and represent a number of case of 300 billions of dollars. (Madras, India) 

Photo report's insight:

"Ils gagnent peu et pourtant travaillent beaucoup, ils passent entre 70 et 80 % de leur vie éveillés dans leur échoppe souvent plus petite qu’une cellule de prison. Ils sont partout en Inde et nourrissent 1,2millliard d’humains. Quand la nuit tombe, leur échoppe se transforme pour l’occasion en petit théâtre où les lumières commencent à scintiller, pareilles aux feux de la rampe qui s’allument après les trois coups qui donnent le départ de la pièce..."- Frédéric Delangle

12 millions d’enfants dans la rue en Inde | Serge Bouvet, photographe reporter

12 millions d’enfants dans la rue en Inde | Serge Bouvet, photographe reporter | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

N’importe quel voyageur qui a erré en Inde, y a aperçu un peu partout, des mioches groupés ou seuls, un peu perdu, un peu hagard, tumultueusement livides, dépenaillés, boueux, crasseux mais le regard si intense qu’il vous crispe d’une émotion poignante.


En Inde, ces enfants SDF, sont estimé à12 millions !

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.
