It’s always inevitable – in my case anyway – that when one digs and sorts through mountains of clutter one would find a gem somewhere within. This gem could be a favourite T-shirt from one’s teen-age years, a vinyl of the Eagles’ Hotel California (reported to have evil undertones), or a whole pile of clipped negatives amid an ephemera of film negatives.
Here are a few street photos I took in Jaipur, India, more than a decade ago. Back then this popular tourist destination to me seemed to be frozen in time, perhaps looking much like it was when it was founded by Maharajah Jai Singh II in the 18th century.
Jaipur, nicknamed the Pink City for its rose-coloured walls, is a photographer’s dream. I recall feeling wonder on my short visit years ago. I’m betting it hasn’t changed much since then – and that, I think, is just as well.
All images used 35mm film.
