Photographer's Note

On my way from Pilani, a tiny college town in the state of Rajasthan, approximately 200km from Delhi, I found this itinerant family of migratory people, who move from place to place in search of farm jobs. Thier main, perhaps the only, property is a camel. Here this was a large family, with three camels, at least three men, a number of women of all ages in colorful dresses, and lots of little kids. These people were in that area at this time because this is the time when dried post-harvest wheat plants are collected and converted into husks. The husks are transported over the farm lands by carts drawn by camels. These people had set up a few temporary shelters to protect themselves from the sun, and were resting, when I approached. The kids went wild with excitement, the women gigled, young girls were shy, and the men were amused. The women and the kids filed into posed formations but the men realized what I was after and quickly broke them up. Unfortunately this is probably the only passable frame I could take at this was difficult to concentrate with so running kids running after you to catch your attention.
