"Every artist dips his brush in his own soul and paints
his own nature into his pictures"
henry ward beecher
All photos by photographer: Claude Renault
From Flickr testimonials:
"...his photographs are multi-faceted, profound, and historically aware.
With his camera, Claude is able to bring India close to us.
He views people without any type of social romanticism and portrays them
in everyday life situations, their self-confidence, pride, joy,
religion, serenity, leisure, contemplation, modestry, sadness, misery, poverty...
Claude doesn't approach people with his camera in an aloof
and voyeuristic manner, but as one of them.
His impressions are, in their perfectly calculated light and their play of colours,
a declaration of love to the people of this subcontinent..."
I couldn't have said it better myself..!
