Waste Picker | Chowpatty beach, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India | 2009
A waste picker on the look out for plastic bottles at the Chowpatty beach which is at the end of Marine drive. The beach was full of waste due to the high tide.
its darker reality of metro…sea lashes out all d waste dat v dump in it..dat waste is means of survival for many such ragpickers whom u find several places picking up such waste…
u hav captured it well….lovely depiction of common man’s life…great backdrop of sea/towers/dirty waste..and him doin dark job witout any inhibitions….
Great photo of a sad reality.
This is a beautiful capture!
I just love how your street photography and the tone of the pic is lovely..brings out the mood quite well.

It tells a story.
Une image de la vie courante. Il y en a qui ont plus de chance que d’autre.
I like the depth of focus in your shot.

Great .. love the toning and the desaturnation
hmm.. we ought to save the beaches! is he a wastepicker from the muncipality or is he picking to sell it somewhere? nice photographs, joshi.
good color.. matches with the theme..
Beautiful shot Joshi. Love the play with tones in this one
Dark side, but noble side… Your tones choice adds a very interesting mood
a classic shot.. two contrasting world in one shot!!.. the inconsiderate and developed side and the darker side of merely surviving… pretty touching shot!! mwah!!
Very nice contrast and composition, but I must say that this shot would have much more impact and appeal if we could see that man’s face
Love the treatment of weak light and decolored effect!
Nice capture, The picture describes the topic very nice. Well done Joshi.
Good, strong shot and captures the mood of this guy.
A powerful and moving image. Like the angle with the rich looking architecture in the background. Makes for a very thought provocative composition.
Strong image with a lot of atmosphere and mood. Nice work
An image which speaks about her even so about respect
WONDERFUL shot . Love it !
Really a masterpiece!!
You really know how to shoot Bombay.
And some of us think we got it bad. Just wait until it comes to collecting trash to make a living. Great imagery. Keep them coming.
It is striking the contrast between the poverty on the foreground and the opulence represented by the luxuries buildings in the background. Well seen!
Excellent picture and contrast
Una fotografia que habla por si sola, llena de sentimientos… los cuales estan surgiendo dentro de mi al verla.
Buen trabajo, saludos.
a different one than your usual models but all the more very much showing another side of the real world.
Excellent treatment and capture.
I feel loneliness in this one.
Terrific shot, the skyscrapers in the background are a perfect foil for this man who is working on the very basics of survival.
What a daunting task. The beach looks very inhospitable at this time.
Excellent shot, I am not sure how money he makes from this
This is great photo journalism, the image tells a story and makes you think.
Your focus and the city in background is excellent.
Such a poignant shot….fantastic composition!
Beautiful capture and such a contrast with those luxurious skyscrapers in the background.
The image is spectacular but unfortunately portrays a sad reality
Wow, great photo. I didn’t know that so much trash washes up like that there.

Lovely image with the skyscrapers in the background and the squalor in the foreground; sad about the lone figure scavenging for a living.
