Finding locations is always an interesting process – trying to combine the brief with reality and create something that exceeds both.

The process can sometimes become a little obsessive… I’ll never look at free-standing swings, bus stops or football goals the same way again…

Nat - Does this mean that soccer takes league’s castoffs? Ouch, that’s low.

admin - If they do they don’t appear to have much of a fan base…

Chowpatty Beach

Chowpatty Beach in Mumbai was the place that probably summed up India best for me. A contrast of extraordinary wealth and poverty, beauty and pollution, tourism and tradition.

India has a population 1.2 billion and is the 11th largest economy in the world.

Mumbai’s population of 18 million people represents 1.5% of the total population of India.  Of those 18 million residents 60% are homeless or live in slums. Mumbai generates 16% of the countries income tax.

Tracy Crawford - Great images and the commentary about the population demographics is shocking!

Photography is something that is usually created in an instant. Sometimes it takes days of planning, production and searching, sometimes it is found by chance. As with all things creative, it dies as quickly as it is born, unless it is shared.

“Nothing exists until or unless it is observed. An artist is making something exist by observing it. And his hope for other people is that they will also make it exist by observing it”

William S. Burroughs
