Photographer's Note

This man is a labourer and fruit-porter in the Devaraja Market in Mysore. He earns a living by carrying basketfuls of bananas on his head. I don’t know exactly how much he gets paid, but I’ve been told that average daily wages in India are often in the range of 40 to 50 rupees, or one US dollar.

The picture is slightly cropped.
