A leprous man and a beggar. Nizamuddin West, Delhi, 2018.

Leprosy is still widespread in India. I spent a long time on that street, the leprous man didn’t mind the presence of my camera. After some time a beggar came, his movements were singular, with his head lolling on his bending chest. The moment was eventually broken by a policeman who brought the leprous man away, for a reason that I ignore.
