Vincent de Groot: Faces of India Part 2

Photograph © Vincent de Groot-All Rights Reserved

This is the second installment of Vincent de Groot's photographs of India on this blog. The black & white photographs, of people in markets, are arranged in a SoundSlides slideshow accompanied here by a hip-hop style of could well be modern Bhangra or something similar. As I mention in my earlier post, 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.
