Tourist photographers

part of a project on tourist photographers found at various tourist destinations around India. your photographs are sent to you by post without the postage stamp to make sure the postman delivers it to you as he can claim the postage money. with their livelihood under threat from technology, most are looking for other work, while few have shifted to digital cameras and portable printers.

Recently watched a short film which was based on Mahavats - the elephant caretakers. The idea was to talk of professions that will die in a couple of years for various reasons.

The tourist photographers, which were once such an intrinsic part of every holiday, will unfortunately have to face the same fate. I would appreciate if you could share with me the write-up that accompanied these pics. If not, i'd love to do one.

Well, haven't been able to continue the project as i'm busy with other stuff now. But it would be great if you could do a write-up. Really appreciate it. Thanks.
