The Polish photographer Magdalena Bagryanov lives in the capital of the Arab Emirate of Sharjah. At the same time, it does not care about the soul in Indian culture. Magdalena travels through India and photographs ordinary people nothing her beauty and originality.
The inexhaustible interest in life inherent in Magdalena opens up new corners of the world, revealing the striking originality of human faces. ” It is looking into the eyes of a person that we get a feeling of his character, his emotions,” notes Magdalena. “It’s a glance that allows us to establish a personal connection with him and understand : who he really is”
One of the art projects of the photo artist was embodied in India, giving us a luxurious series of colorful portraits made on the streets of this amazing country. In India, Magdalena spent several months exploring the culture and studying the national psychology of its inhabitants, so to speak, in their natural environment.
In the background of the portraits you can see lively streets and stray animals. But the emphasis is still on the face, first of all – on the amazing sincerity in the views. Magdalena manages to establish a magnetic connection between each of her characters and the viewer. This idea of interpersonal communication is the driving force behind her project.
Experiencing a long standing passion for Indian culture, the photo artist visited the country several times. She even visited Rajasthan, where she saw the highly popular Pushkar Fair the annual market of camels and other cattle.
The exotic journey gave Magdalena a new impluse of inspiration and further deepened ties with India. The Purshkar Fair is usually attended by thousands of rural families, from camel traders to nomads. With many of them the photo artist was lucky to make friends.
