Learning to see the familiar – one photographer’s experience

The best thing about street photography is its accessibility. You can practice it on your own doorstep using any
kind of camera. Unfortunately, until recently I had always struggled to successfully photograph what was on my

Here's a Q&A about his images from the Garo Hills, all the while spreading some of his point of view as an anthropologist.
