Indian Portraits
 



Ces dernières années, les voyages en Inde se sont succédé. J’ai peu à peu entamé une série de portraits au gré de mes rencontres - sans lien avec mon autre travail au centre psychiatrique d’Ousteri - pour me souvenir.

Sans préparation à la prise de vues, dans l’instant et le décor du moment, ils posent longuement ou furtivement… 

Précieux morceaux de route, collectionnés un à un.

Ces portraits sont présentés en petit format (18x18cm), légendés des noms des personnes et endroits de prises de vues.
