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.

Jodhpur's Mandanas | Photographer: Serge Bouvet

Jodhpur's Mandanas  | Photographer: Serge Bouvet | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"It is lovely to see all these thresholds naively decorated houses. A Jodhpur or Jaipur, we can not ignore the existence of this folk art painting mandanas, which still continues in Rajasthan. Their ephemeral existence is governed by the religious or the change of seasons."

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.

10 trucs pour réaliser un bon portrait | Serge Bouvet, photographe reporter

10 trucs pour réaliser un bon portrait | Serge Bouvet, photographe reporter | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Il n’est jamais évident pour une personne d’être photographié. A vous de les mettre en confiance. Ayez une voix forte et engageante. Avant de mitrailler comme un forcené de la gâchette, prenant le temps d’observer votre sujet et son environnement. Comme l’a si bien écrit Tom Ang « Trop d’indifférence à la prise de vue risque de produire un portrait manquant de force affective. »4 Dans le cas d’un portrait préparé, demandez à votre sujet de simuler des émotions que vous voulez traduire dans le portrait. Par exemple, si vous souhaitez donner l’impression que le modèle est dominateur, demandez-lui de s’imaginer en caporal donnant des ordres.

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.

Une tasse de bhang ou une taffe de charas | sergebouvet.com | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Charas, bhang et ganja, le cannabis en Inde en images par le photographe Serge Bouvet.
Pour certains habitants du Rajasthan et pour moi, la journée commence par avec un masala tea et pour d'autres, moins nombreux, par une tasse de bhang une boisson faite avec des feuilles de cannabis, du lait, du sucre et des épices. A Jodhpur, Jaipur ou Jaisalmer, vers sept heures du matin, quelques clients commencent à affluer vers les Bhang Shop estampillé d'une inscription "GOVT authorised bhang shop" pour assurer de la légalité de l'établissement...
