Photographer's Note

Just a snapshot from Jorhat, a medium-sized town in Assam state in the remote northeastern part of India. I happened to notice this less than half built house and saw the two men busy at work.

This is what I would call an ideal distribution of tasks, one man laying the bricks and the other supervising him. What I don't quite understand is why they started on this floor, why there are so many plants on the floor below, why this skeleton of a house was built among what looks like slum huts, why there is a satellite dish on a house where nobody lives, why...?

So many questions and I will never know.

I guess you could call this photo nothing special, but it was probably the most special building i saw in Jorhat, a town off the tourist track and with no magnificent temples or palaces. Here is a larger version.

If you want to see other men in Jorhat really at work, please have a look at the workshops.
