Graphite pencils and Poster paint, 10" x 10"
Everything looks so different when viewed through the lens of a camera. On one of my photography excursions into the bowels of the walled city of Delhi, I made a few discoveries myself. I came across a father and his child. The father, probably a laborer on daily wages, was in deep contemplation and looked troubled. Perhaps he had not found work that day? From his demeanor it was quite evident that the worries of his life were weighing heavily on him. Behind him was a child, sprawled out on the seat. He was oblivious to his father’s dilemma and seemed blissfully content with life. It was quite obvious that the father would do anything to ensure a better future for his child. In that moment I realized how much I take for granted the basic amenities of life.
Through this composition I have tried to depict the bond between a father and his child in the form of a figure study.
