On my trip through India I was mostly interested to capture how people make a living…

…mostly through very hard work..

Somehow wordpress played with me, with the sequence of my images, in case there are some doubles. Still enjoy what you see.

In my photography work I thrive to capture the soul of the moment. I let my images speak the language of stillness and vibration, with that I leave my audience to find their own reflections and emotions. My approach in my work is to lead other's to their own imagination and freedom of dreams. I invite you to visit my web site

    Thank you, dear Cornelia, for the visual immersion into the lives of the common people of India! While they have a hard time making a living, they look happy and content. By the way, if you wish to remove a picture, right-click on it and press the delete button. Greetings from Canada and have great week, Cornelia!

    • That’s kind of true that they look content, yet maybe they don’t know any other way. Thank you for your advice, I always do it that way , I tried all of that with the delete button etc., but for some reason that evening it just didn’t work out

        I know the WordPress system sometimes creates problems when one is trying to make changes to a post’s content. Have a great day, Cornelia!

  3. This is wonderful! I study cultures, including India, so thank you.

  4. Jill says:

    Your posts are always a pleasure to see, Cornelia. Whatever the subject, you capture it so well.

  5. Wonderful captures Cornelia.

  6. While these sights are ubiquitous in India, in your pictures, they look unusual and captivating ☺️☺️ Beautiful work Cornelia.

  7. Thanks Cornelia for sharing these simple yet beautiful images from life in everyday India 👍

  8. Indians are a rare kind they believe in sheer hardwork and are honest. But of late, the systems have been disturbed. In the name Democracy people are looted and every politician wants to be the King. People are losing the belief in the system. I do not understand where it shall take us.
    You have captured the images in their totality, where sweat and blood is depicted.
    Thanks for your love for my country.

    • Shiva, that is really sad to hear, that people loose the believe in the system, which seems not working well for the hard working people. But it’s the same here in the US. Oh I am in deep love with your country, and as soon as I’m able I will go back again.

  9. Being an Indian, I enjoyed these images than anyone else. I must say you are a photographer par excellence !!!! Love from India

    Beautiful snaps.

  11. Eyes and souls… A beautiful selection of photographs.

    • Thank you so much, James, I went through your blog and find it very interesting. How could we work together, as I am a professional photographer and always interested in global issues?

      • You’re welcome, Cornelia, and thank you too. Would be fantastic to work together at some point. I’m currently focusing on moving back to Italy and starting new life there again, but will definitely be travelling again soon, hopefully working on some bigger projects and causes. Let me know if you have any ideas in the meantime, and I’ll keep you posted also… Jx

      • Thank you for your kind response, James. Let’s stay in touch and once you are settled in Italy starting your new life, please feel free to drop me a line. Meanwhile I wish you good luck.

      • Absolutely. Speak anon. Wishing you the very best.

    You could also have included the other India which works in proper offices as well. This is only a one sided portrayal and gives a wrong image of what we are all about.

    • Thank you for stopping by and your well appreciated comment. Indeed I agree with you, I am well aware of this and at times I was reflecting on that, if I am giving just a one sided image of India. I do know that your wonderful country has another side to be portrayed.
