Photographer captures holy men and nomads in India
Holy men, nomads and a 110-year-old woman whose offspring populated an entire village, all appearing among the characters captured in beautiful portraits from all over India
- Wojtek Stark mapped the length and breadth of the Indian subcontinent to photograph its diversity
- Portrait photos & # 39; s include a one-eyed 110-year-old who lives in a village that is completely populated by her own descendants & # 39;
- Also a nice older lady in Jodhpur broke and a toothless old man caught in the middle of his dinner
Fascinating portraits of India's most colorful characters were created by an inspired artist – who has decided to travel to every Indian state in two years in search of the perfect photo.
Incredible portrait photos are a one-eyed 110-year-old who lives in a village that is completely populated by her own descendants and their own families; a messy holy man or & # 39; Baba & # 39; in Pashkur and a Kashmiri woman whose expression is an embodiment of the expression & # 39; a photo says more than a thousand words & # 39 ;.
Another striking shot catches a beautiful older lady in Jodhpur and a toothless old man who is caught in the meantime.
Photographer Wotijek Stark said that & # 39; Carlsberg & # 39; Baba Ji from Puskar (left) & # 39; one of the most curious personalities I have ever met, a person with a very deep and enigmatic spirit at the same time & # 39 ;. Another image (right) shows a man with an oddly shaped nose and wide eyes in Bhuj, Gujarat
Stark said he was struck by the diversity of people across the length and breadth of the subcontinent. A man with an irregular white beard, wayfarer-type glasses and missing teeth can be seen posing for an image in India (left). This woman (right), who seems blind in one eye, is said to be 110 years old. Stark said: & She has given birth to 11 children and the village where this Rabari lady lives is only populated by her descendants and marriages & # 39;
A spectacled man with a turban is pictured (left) in Puri, Orissa. Turbans are worn by supporters of both Sikhism and some Islamic sects. Sufi scientists also wear the turban as their traditional headdress. Shi & # 39; a-Muslims consider wearing turban as a & # 39; confirmed tradition & # 39 ;. Another man who misses teeth, has dark hair and an irregular gray beard, is cheerful to see smiling in Kolkata (right)
An employee is photographed by Stark in New Delhi, India (right). He works for a pittance in a recycling factory. An average annual wage for a comparable role in India is just over £ 1,000 a year. Another image (left) shows a torn gentleman with turban staring intently into the camera
A confused man can be seen in Vapi, Gujarat (right). A Kashmiri woman consciously looks at the camera (left). In August, Delhi stripped the Kashmir Muslim majority of its autonomy and forced a clamp on mosques in the Himalayas. Both Pakistan and India claim Kashmir and an armed uprising against Indian domination has taken place over the past three decades
An older lady from Ajmer, Rajasthan, is depicted after a stroke (left). According to reports, India has the second highest population of older people in the world, it is expected to rise to 12 percent of the total population by 2020. An older & # 39; hipster & # 39; is depicted in Bihar Sharif (right)
A screaming man is depicted in Varanasi (left). Stark says: & # 39; It is very common in India to chew masala paan. It contains beetle nuts packed in a special leaf, along with herbs and lime powder. When there are no more teeth and the space under the lower lip is full of paan, it looks like this. Incredible India! & # 39; Stark said the lady on the right image to the & # 39; Rabari caste & # 39; belongs. They are semi-nomadic and live by herding camels, buffalo and goats
Stark endorsed this image of a man showing the whites of his eyes in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand (right), & # 39; Untitled & # 39 ;. A friendly-looking woman with a cross on her cheek can be seen smiling in Dwarka, Gujarat (left)
