Sarenga is a largish remote village in rural West Bengal.

Photographing the people of West Bengal is a joy, they are always smiling and they almost demand that you take their pictures. It's a true people photographers paradise.

Very nice image Graham. Great documentary shot with a ton of socio-cultural information encoded, but also beautifully composed with the bisecting lines that runs lower left to upper right and lower right to upper left.

Thank you Frank. I was kneeling in fish scales and blood to get the angle :)

good job getting that angle, the double row of fish slicers, men and steel shows me how far away from the kitchen of life I keep myself.

I am just amazed at the positions they squat in. Doing it all their lives it is as comfortable for them as we are in a chair, but good gravy...! 8~

I have to ask, is that a knife of sorts under his foot, the thing that looks like a rearing snake? S-
