Photographer's Note

We reached Kumortuli at Noon. Most of the Artists were taking a nap at that time. We were going slowly and seaching photograph. In one workshop I found there is a blueish light coming from an overhead plasticts used to prevent the idols under prepation.There were lot of idols and to make a good composition is bit difficult. I stayed there for a while and decided to take some selective view. I dont want to change the effect of light here. So I am uplosding with the tone I have had originally.

About Kumortuli:Kumortuli (also spelt Kumartuli, or the archaic spelling Coomartolly) is a traditionally potters’ quarter in northern Kolkata (previously known as Calcutta), the capital of the east Indian state of West Bengal. By virtue of their artistic productions these potters have moved from obscurity to prominence. This Kolkata neighbourhood, not only supplies clay idols of Hindu gods and goddesses to Kolkata and its neighbourhoods, but a number of idols are exported.
