One of the things I like to try and capture in photographs is juxtaposition, an unlikely or quirky combination of elements. That was what sprang to my mind when I noticed this man looking at a poster in Haridwar. This scene presented itself on the edge of a temporary, tented community in Haridwar. Millions of people had converged on the town for the Kumbh Mela festival, some of those people having travelled for several days to get there. Entire villages of people travelling together had set up such encampments in and around the town and we were made welcome.
