Searching for a peaceful expression of Delhi...

This is my 24th trip to India and I have a couple of assignments on my list, but I also have a small project going on just for myself; I want to capture something peaceful and tranquil, in the middle of all the crazy chaos that haunts the huge capital of India… if that’s possible?

So I wander the streets where noise, pollution and turmoil are everywhere. And I do find what I’m looking for in a way – I find people who probably are so used to all these elements that they seem to ignore it all (I have to admit, I’m not one of them). They are surrounded by the extreme, but they don’t care; they are in their own, seemingly serene, world. Like the teenager in the photo (above). Standing under a bridge in a very busy area of Delhi, not far from the airport, with a look on his face as if he is in a green, pollution free and peaceful forest of Norway...

"I’m waiting for a friend," he told me with a smile, and admitted the chaos did not bother him at all. "I live here; if I should let all this get to me, I will go as crazy as the traffic surrounding me before I turn twenty," he laughed. To get my shot, I took the photo before I talked to him. If I had asked him first, I was afraid he would be more stiff or pose knowing that I was taking his picture.
