“The most difficult thing for me is a portrait.
You have to try and put your camera between the skin of a person and his shirt.”
(Henri Cartier-Bresson – French photographer, 1908–2004)

Sadanand Patil is a well-known Indian theatre actor who was trained at the National School of Drama (NSD) in New Delhi, one of the foremost theatre institutions in the world.
This was shot in the gardens this during a break between two scenes of a movie in which we were both working together.
This brilliant actor is also one of the kindest and humblest person I met.
