PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Most visitors to Delhi hang out at the tout-infested Connaught Place or marvel at the neo-fascist colonial monstrosities built by Lyeuten, but for me Delhi's true charm can be found in a compact community of sufi muslim hidden in the vast green expanses of South Delhi: Nizamuddin West.

Entering Nizamuddin for the first time is like traveling back in time to 13th century Persia - you rub your eyes in disbelief among the red rose sellers, the Taliban lookalikes and the shy, veiled women.

Part one of this three-part project deals with my first visit to the place during a torrential monsoon downpour. Quick impressions, sketches of incomprehensibility and awe...

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Third part of the global project in Benares.
I hope you do not yawn too much :)
It's a new baby project.
Definitly I'm not sure that the all photographs works with each others.
Advice(s) and feeling are very welcome.
In any case thank you for all the words I received in the first two part.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Khari Baoli in Old Delhi, is the largest spice market in the world, and it is as quintessentially Indian as anything else you're likely to stumble into in that stately capital.

On two separate mornings I wandered around Khari Baoli. The first time I got there with the help of a savvy rickshaw driver who guided me all the way up to the roof of the thing, from which you could see the neighboring mosque and half of Old Delhi. This was several hours before opening time and I saw an entire community of day laborers and vagrants who live there, scraping by as best they can.

The second morning I showed up after opening time and saw the retail side of the operation.

There s a dark look to these pictures et I did not find the place or the people depressing. I hope these images don't lead to misunderstandings. I was amazed by much of what I saw, especially the resilience of the spice workers to whom I dedicate this thing...

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
A little island in the sea, where you can be you and we can be we.  Amid the clave and the guaguancó, las noches de arena, los suspiros de las sirenas.  No te vayas, chico.  Quedate con las brisas y la feliz tristeza de tu querido Puerto Rico.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Just behind the smart guest house where I stayed in a leafy district of South Delhi was a humble restaurant with no menu, just the ability to serve great veggie food like dal fry and fresh baked chapatis...

As I finished my first meal there one night, I noticed how deep the building was, extending trough several rooms all the way down to a tandoor oven where a sweating man kept the chapati bead coming. The mixed lighting and textured green walls strongly appealed to me and on a whim I asked the owner if I could go out back and shoot his chapati maker in action. To my surprise he agreed and these little pictures are he result...

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

During the World Cup 2006, the House of Music, Porto,  promoted at the Pedro Hispano Hospital a  of musical workshop with children and adults interned in that unit of health. The participants were guided by Tim Steiner, Samantha Mason, with the participation of Tom Rainer, David Harrison.

In elapsing of these sessions the Portuguese patients and the English musicians had improvised/composed a hymn of praise to the Portuguese national team and had given freedom to its poetical vein, with the collective writing of the following lyric of deep poetical pendor:

Go aheadPortugal/ You have  no equal one/ United we win the cup/ and the others not even raise/ We even eat them (if necessary)/ Just show us your race/Choir: Deco, Maniche, Good Death and Figo Costinha, Ricardo Carvalho Romaldo…

It was a unforgettable and unique afternoon.

Matosinhos, 2006

Two weeks in a new country is never long enough for a cohesive impression.  So here are some fragmented sets of images from my two weeks of travel in this interesting country.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Every year thousands of people arrive to the Galician village of Sabucedo (Spain) to participate in the 400-year-old festival 'Rapa das bestas', the Shearing of the Beasts. Several hundreds of wild horses are rounded up from the nearby mountains and put into the village’s pen to be marked and their mane and tails trimmed. This taming tradition unfolds throughout many villages of Galicia June onwards, till the end of summer.

The very day of the Shearing, at 6:30am a religious service is offered in Sabucedo’s parish church to request St. Lawrence’s blessing, right before most experienced stockbreeders march on foot or on horseback into the mountains -this time covered with thick haze- to find and round up wild herds of horses.

Animals are driven down to the village pen where they are locked till the shearing begins in ‘O Curro’ a traditional corral, right in the middle of Sabucedo. Despite the soccer World Cup quarter finals game between Spain and Paraguay, scheduled to coincide with the ceremony, the ‘aloitadores’, people who grapple with the animals, keep their complete focus on the age-old tradition, to subdue the horses in order to have their mane and tails trimmed.

Before the shearing begins, pregnant animals, fouls and colts are separated from the rest of the herd to avoid any risks; while those that remain do not suffer any harm and are released in wild, having been groomed and cleaned.
