Empathy. Not sure why this word has been stuck for last several days with me. Some times we mistake empathy with pity. Empathy <> Pity.
When I first thought of making a portrait of Mr. Ashish Ivon Charan, the first word that came to mind was goofy. I’m sure he’s got his share of problems to deal with. But I wanted a fun image of him. It’s so exciting when you have an image in your mind and you can’t wait to give it a try. This person was one of those who I couldn’t wait to get in front of the camera. This image is no where close to what I had in mind but I’ll take it. Some times the image in the head is just a draft that finishes with the end product on screen. Absolutely loved having this man in front of the camera.
