Kolkata’s street photography is incomplete without photographs of the hand pulled Rickshaw. I present four shots of Rickshaws, different from what I had seen my contemporaries do, or perhaps different from what the few of the renowned photographers did.
Photographs [ 001 ] : I tried to keep it minimal, my feet over and near the head of a very elderly person who pulled the rickshaw in exchange of as less as ten rupees. (2010) [post]
Photograph [ 002 ] was very elegant of the rickshaw pullers and it appealed to me. (2010)
Photograph [ 003 ] : I wanted to show a big crossing, busy street with heavy traffic and how instead of the slow pace, the hand pulled rickshaw coped with, forming a part of the city flowing and surviving with it. (2012)
Photograph [ 004 ] : Another busy street, another attempt. (2012)
Photograph [ 005 ] : Shot in the rains, no clue about captions. Do suggest one. (2012)
Photograph [ 006 ] : Another busy street, another attempt. (2012)
I have no specific reasons why I transformed them and presented them in monotone Black and White. May be that appealed to me, and I wanted the viewer to notice the subject and get with the feeling straight away , I am not sure.
