Giles and Nicole are currently travelling through Southern India and share with us some more of their experiences with Bluey. The Portrait Equality project has given them a ‘communication tool’ to stop and get to know people along their journey who they might otherwise not be able to connect with due to language differences. They share with us:
It wasn’t our intention to stop during our travels for Portrait Equality images, but as we walked through the streets of Marenahalli we just couldn’t resist. A small family of four sitting at the front of their tiny one room brick house. There was a mother with deformations to her right eye and a father with deformations to his upper lip and two small children, a girl and a boy. Both had the sweetest faces and greeted us with their big bright eyes as we passed by. The little girl wore the bluest little sari adorned with gold trimmings. She just couldn’t stop staring at us. We greeted them and continued walking, but then stopped a few meters past their house and decided to load the film in Bluey and go back for our first photo.
