Suzy Bennett’s images from India burst with colour. Yet the picture which stands out for me the most is this almost monochrome shot of a traditional shepherd with his herd of animals. The depicted environment and subdued, creamy colours (the grass, animals’ backlit fur, the man’s white tunic) give the image somehow symbolic and spiritual feel; and yet there is warmth to it. In contrast with the rest of the collection, the mood here is a lot calmer and contemplative. I also find it very intriguing and wonder how long the stick carried by the shepherd really is!
