An old man I met in a remote village in West Bengal. I love the work of Steve McCurry and Eric Vali so trying to get that type of feel to my travel portraits. Hopefully worth a look large.

I enjoy this style of portraiture very much. Good to see another one of yours on here, I only noticed it thanks to the 'featured photo', so glad I didn't miss it.
