ARPS

I recently submitted a panel of travel photographs to the Royal Photographic Society to be considered for their Associate distinction. After examination, they decided that the panel met the required standard, so I have become an Associate (ARPS). The fifteen pictures which made up my panel are shown below. They were taken on a trip to Kolkata, India. Before I went I was aware of this community which had grown up around the railway line, and I was keen to see it and photograph it. The prints were displayed in three rows of five images, as shown in the hanging plan .

Statement of Intent

A thriving community of people of all ages, living in abandoned and condemned buildings or makeshift shacks, has grown up around the railway tracks in Kolkata, India.  I wanted to show the resilience, fortitude, resourcefulness and – apparently – contented acceptance of their conditions by these people as they go about their daily lives barely interrupted by the trains passing at occasional intervals.
