Streets of Goa

I had this wonderful opportunity of participating in GoaPhoto 2015, the inaugural event of the annual GoaPhoto show. I was one of 24 participants in the Magnum Photo workshops.

Richard Kalvar, Magnum Photos, was my mentor. He was very meticulous in editing our images and spent a lot of time on critique. It was a great experience having him review most of our images and selecting the best ones. I continued shooting even after the show was done and so I have featured more images than what I showed as my final sequence in the photo show.

I spent most of my time stalking the streets of Fontainhas seeking out images.

The four days were spent shooting and reviewing selected images of the previous day’s shoot.

You get a lot of insight into how a professional photographer’s selection process (called editing) works.

In a way editing is probably the most important part of the work.

Goa was colorful and the people were really friendly.

They let us take pictures freely and sometimes they wanted us to take more pictures. Welcome break from Doha.

The food was fantastic if spicy food is your kind of thing. The Goans do fix you up with good drinks. You’ll never go thirsty in this place.

The weather was muggy as summer just started. The schools will be off in a few weeks time.

The Goan people are a mix of rural and cosmopolitan people.

I would love to go back to Goa and continue shoot more pictures of the amazing Goan people.
