20-March-2012: kids - Jodhpur (poster my exposition of photography from India), India.

This photograph has been selected as a poster for my exposion of photography that will take place in a local cafe in Komotini, Greece on 21 of June 2012. The poster of the exposition is bellow and the image has been cropped a little bit to the right. The design of the poster is from graphic designer Vaso (link spagheti design). Some encyclopedic information about Jodhpur (this city is called also as "the blue city"): The blue color in the past was used only by Brahmani high cast (blue house was a house of a higher cast). Later this color was used by lower casts because people believed that this color enhance the cooling of the house and expels the mosquitoes ;-). More cities in the region of Rajastan in India have this blue color, ie. Bundi.

Recently in a speech of the Turkish photographer  Ara Gulerm, mentioned that issue. Asia is full of colour so the photographer has no other choice rather to choose colour. This image is from the  Chitwan jungle in Nepal and it has been selected from the following set of images:
