Love on the rails

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Sergio Gonzalez

This picture portrays life is a slum in India and more then that a old age couple that survives day by day in this slum. In a country that is run by caste, by religion, by an old tradition that goes back more then 10,000 years but recently found itself in a western world where materialism matters more.The impact of capitalism and modernism in India as been fatal causing extreme poverty in some areas and in other areas extreme pollution.There must be a wiser way then this!

Location: Kolkata,India
