Women and Children and Colour.
Category: Travel Portraits
Photo and caption by Natasha Sorensen
Taken on the outskirts of Old Delhi, India, this photo represents optimism in an impoverished place. The purpose of being in this area was the visit a nearby orphanage, Sharma Mercy, and this photo was captured on return to the vehicle. The remarkable array of colour demonstrated by the women's ensembles naturally contrasts the dismal living conditions and surroundings. Moreso, the photo was taken completely spontaneously which enables the audience to see how underprivileged yet accepting of their environment these women and children are.
Location: Old Delhi, India
