The Speed of Life and Death

Paris – For Charles

Few things have inspired me like Charles Marville’s photographs of Paris. And so when I woke up this morning, after a surprise daylong layover in the city, and saw this balloon floating beyond the Ecole Militaire, I thought of Marville’s amazing archive of a city in flux.

Rickshaw Driver

In the heat. In the sun. In the rain. They’re pedaling. Like so many I’ve seen this week, their jobs seem brutal. With fares determined by both subjective (how hard they tried to deliver their customers) and objective (distance) metrics, it’s not an easy life. Yet they’re crucial to transporting this city’s people. This is one of the drivers from our shoot this morning.

Back Breaking

Amidst oppressive heat and poverty, some amazing stories of heroic work by healthcare workers in the Jaitpur area of Delhi. While the film team was doing their thing, I watched this labourer haul huge sacks of rice to a shop across from a patient’s house.

Observer

As we were filming in a nearby health clinic, this woman stood by just watching. Our crew attracted quite a crowd, but she stood back. In the noise and chaos, attention and trouble that a film team brings to an extremely poor slum area of southwest Delhi, something about her look was very different. I asked for her photo and she just nodded.
