A bearded man taken in the bustling side streets of the Moslem quarter of Fatehpur Sikri, site of Akbar the Great's extraordinary abandoned settlement. I was meandering down the crowded main street of the town looking out for possible portrait subjects only to see this guy sitting with his back to the wall in a side alley. He consented to being photographed and I was keen to capture the texture and flow of his head gear and beard whilst maintaining focus on his eyes.
There was some uneasiness in his demeanour that came through them, but I persevered with the portrait, originally in colour. I gave this final image a digital "collodion" treatment for some extra visual texture and emotional impact.
