New Student Photo Entry #7

The first three photos come from Jonathan Camuzeaux, an incoming MIA student.

“Faces” was shot in Allur, a village in Tamil Nadu where SEVAI’s main offices are. These children (Bana Pria, Deepika and Keerthik) lived in the Allur Sevai Center and had their education sponsored by the NGO.

“White” was shot in Tamil Nadu, India, in a small village named Pettavaithalai, close to Trichy. I was completing an internship there for the Indian NGO SEVAI (Society for Education, Village Action and Improvement). This old man was waiting, with numerous other villagers, for a free medical check-up organized by the NGO. We started talking and I asked him if I could take a picture of him. I was fascinated by his intense gaze.

“Memories of You” was taken for a friend I haven’t seen for a while, in the 18th arrondissement, in Paris. It is also a tribute to an amazing performance of the eponymous song, by Rahsaan Roland Kirk and Jacki Byard.
