Hear the Drum

Photo and caption by Jason PENNEWELL
I asked to photograph this man while in a rural village in India. He was playing the drums for a ceremony dedicating a clean water well for his village. After I repeated the question again, his daughter informed me that he was deaf. He proudly posed with his handmade drum and winked at me after he saw his image for the first time in a camera.
