On taking pictures of kids.

On taking pictures of kids. One assistant teacher at the International Center of Photography told me one day: "Don't take too many pictures of children in the street, they aren't real subjects!" I still love to do it, and to remember the time I spend observing them while watching the pictures afterwards (this one was fighting with his sister over candies a moment before). Remembering how free is their mind, unstained by a troubled past, and desires to "become". How natural this all is in their childhood! Then I try to remember mine. Jaisalmer, India, 2014.
