Image Selection – Dharamsala by Simon Villiger

This image selection is a choice of images from my friend, the Swiss photographer Simon Villiger, who has travelled, photographed and recorded sights and sounds of India extensively.

Where tourists gather, beggars are sure to follow…an Indian beggar, trying to make a living from the charitable visitors of the temple in MacLeod Ganj. | Wo Touristen sind, muss man nicht lange auf Bettler warten…ein indischer Bettler auf seinem Platz vor dem Haupttempel in MacLeod Ganj, wo er auf die Freigibigkeit der Besucher hofft.

Youn girls infestive dress, waiting a little tensely for the start of their dance performance. Today the Dalai Lama will be their audience. | Junge Mädchen in festlicher Kleidung erwarten nervös den Beginn ihres Tanzdarbietung…heute wird der Dalai Lama ihre Schritte sehen.

These monks protect their heads from the sun, while they wait for a white car, carrying the Dalai Lama. | Mönche schützen sich gegen die Sonne während sie auf den Dalai Lama warten, der hier bald in seinem weißen Auto vorbeiziehen wird.
