Meeting the locals in Rajasthan and more images from around the world

Turbans, known as pagri or pagadi in India, are especially diverse in Rajasthan, where the local style is said to change every 10 miles

And that’s a wrap


I took this image in Bera, a small village in Rajasthan. I visited hoping to see some of the area’s leopards. As we drove through the hills, trying to find the felines, we stopped to check with some locals if they had seen any lurking in the region. I was really struck by their bright red turbans, which stood out vividly against the arid landscape, and their weathered faces, which pronounced their worldly experience. They were very happy to be photographed as no tourist had ever made such a request. I think the awkward expressions on their faces reflect their lack of experience of posing for pictures, and, yes, we were lucky enough to spot a leopard that very evening.
