India, 20 years old

My first trip to india was quite a revelation. Revelation about colors, about photography and about life… I was 20 yo, freshly integrated in a good business school in France. I went to India with 2 friends to build a fish pond for an indian NGO helping street children of Calcutta. Revelation about life because i realized you could be happy with not a lot of money… It might sounds stupid or naive but it changed my life. I realized when coming back to my MBA school that i was not made for it or that i wanted to pursue something else… And during this 3 month-trip, I took this colorful photo (the first one) and it struck me. Colors. Energy. Same feeling as the feeling i had when i saw my ‘first’ photo the year before, B&W photo in NY… I started to understand photography could be a way to express some inner feelings.
