Photographer's Note

This is one of many compositions presented by the tribal group in Araku Valley, Andhra Pradesh. The whole presentation has a great sense of totality.

I found taking shots pretty difficult as they were moving around quite fast and not in a predictable way. At any moment if you think they will move in a certain direction and you adjust your camera with that, they would do the opposite leaving you with a blank screen and making you look fool.

I loved this composition where the first lady who was exceptionally smart (she was actually the leader or director as you can say of the whole troop) having a handkerchief in her hand and she was creating the compositions throughout. Of course the support staff was excellent.

The motion was expressed especially by the backward moving necklace and the space left on the left side.
