Faces of India: Vincent de Groot

Photograph © Vincent de Groot-All Rights Reserved

I previously featured Vincent de Groot's photographs of Mali on this blog, and now he returns with his newly uploaded Faces of India Soundslides feature. The photographs are in black & white, and are accompanied by a hip-hop style of music....it could well be modern Bhangra. This might be a little incongruous at first, but maybe this is precisely what the photographer intended.

Vincent de Groot took photography up in earnest in 2001, and progressively switched to digital photography since then. Born in the Netherlands, he worked and lived in Germany, then Switzerland and currently resides in France.

His previous slideshow on Malian portraits is here: (Link)
