Portraits are difficult for me. I am sure that my awkwardness in asking permission makes my subject feel awkward, and a vicious cycle is created. But occasionally I get it right.

Mother and child, Rajasthan, India

This young woman was married to a slightly older man, and this is their second son.

She was shy, and wanted me to photograph only her children and her husband. But with a little persistent interest on my part, she finally stopped preparing chai and posed with her son.
