Candid Camera: The Caretaker’s Daughter

Compiled by Tejal Pandey

Sameer Raichur’s lens finds an interesting muse amidst books and playful light

Location: Gokarna.

Moving image: This was taken at the Gokarna Bibliothèque near Kudle Beach. The caretaker’s daughter was a real livewire, running helter-skelter and trying to capture her father’s attention while I was talking to him about the library. Her welcome disturbances led to some great portraits of the pair, but the one I took of her when she finally tired herself out is my favourite.

Photographer: Sameer Raichur is an independent photographer based in Bangalore. After completing his diploma at the Hallmark Institute of Photography in Turners Falls, MA he has been focusing on long-term documentary projects. He was awarded the Toto Funds the Arts Emerging Photographer of the Year Award in 2015.
