Sujata, a friend from Delhi, has sent me some lino boards, cutters and ink and I’m thrilled. Hoping to try out some print making soon. Until then I’ve saved a digital template of a prepped scratchboard. This was made from a photograph that I took yesterday. And while it is incomplete, I like the effect – lines and all.
Yesterday, at around three in the afternoon, two friends and I drove along the road from Dhaka to Ashulia to look for our subjects. We spent and enjoyable hour taking many photographs of quite an enthusiastic bunch of people. We were surrounded at each spot fairly quickly. Some even came forward and asked us to take their pictures. They were all thrilled when they saw the results on our digital panels. We made several stops. You can see some of the photographs here and here.
