Painted backdrops are a part of a long tradition of studio photography in India. I wanted to find out what kind of reaction people would have to a makeshift studio on a busy square in the city of Bhopal. The result is a portfolio of portraits which features a colourful variety everyday people, posed against hand-painted backdrops.

I printed the pictures the next day and hand delivered them.
