Faces of Madhya Pradesh


In the last of my MP series, I feature the people of Madhya Pradesh. I like portrait and street photography and I love the results I get with a 50mm prime lens. Indians are definitely not camera shy. Everyone wants their picture taken! Most of my subjects below asked me to take their pictures. Years ago, kids used to scream "One pen! One pen!." Now it's "One photo! One photo!" Then they ask to see themselves on the LCD screen. I noticed that few people smile when they pose - they usually take on a very serious expression. Here are some of the people I came across in Madhya Pradesh:
