The Stoic Shopkeeper of Jaipur

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Ryan Friese

As the tenth largest city in India with a population of more than 3 million residents, Jaipur does not lack any of the intense, bustling energy that infuses many of India’s densely populated urban areas. As I strolled the streets of Jaipur, soaking in the amazing atmosphere, a particular shopkeeper captured my attention. I was struck by his calm, reserved demeanor as he sat and quietly observed the hectic daily grind of life in Jaipur.

Location: Jaipur, India
