Photographer Name : R Thiagarajan Title : Survival… Description : This is the picture taken in one of the street walk I had recently. There were many people selling some products on the road side. They were busy with their own business. Suddenly i noticed an old lady sitting in a corner of shop and selling groundnuts. No one turned up to buy groundnut but she was selling, for a long time. After an hour a small boy came down and bought groundnut for a little money. The moment she sold her groundnut, I could see this expression on her face.
Photographer Name : Akash Sethi Title : The Crying Lady Description : The Lady was on the side of the road, wanting money and when one gentleman dropped a coin, she was smiling but the tears in her eyes said differently. I was very emotionally attached to the picture as the two emotions, sadness and happiness can both be seen in her eyes. I wish someday, poverty extinguishes from this lovely country of India.

A good portrait reveals something about its subject beyond the immediate appearance of the photograph. It includes layers of meaning and depth that portray the person as a whole, not just the superficial initial impression. Great portraits give us an idea of who the person really is, beyond what they’re trying to outwardly depict.
