Taken in Bangalore, India in 2006, this portrait was made possible because of the little boy’s mother. I was shooting at one of the wet markets I visited in Bangalore when I saw this little boy with his mother who wanted him to look at my camera when I was shooting him.
She placed her hands around his head in order to keep him from moving and I took two shots. I like this one a lot. The other shot has his mom’s hands too close to the face.
