thrown on the street
not a forbidden fruit
zindagi madarchod kamini zindagi ki ma ki chut
I had shot 740 images and these are the last ones about 125 , on the Flickr old uploader I dont use the new uploader ..guess I am not used to sudden changes ,,,
I have always been fascinated by barbers perhaps because of the scissors that run in my family my Dad Mohomed Shakir known as Shakir Master was a gents suit trouser cutter, my dad would not cut shirts kurta pajamas .
He cut safaris as that is what the Dons hoodlums of Nagpada wore , my dad made clothes for all the top dons in the 60s Karim Lala , Basu Bhai, Hashu Bhai., Khaliq Bhai, Maxie , Rashid Bawazir now a Bawa ,,,and so many of them that visited our house at Khatau Bhuvan now Jony Castle at Wodehouse Road.. till we shifted to 3 Mohini Mansions Strand Cinema.
I began shooting barbers recently and shot the religious tonsure at Haji Malang of a couple from Andhra , I know that barber and subsequent visits never got to shoot religious tonsure there.
Than I shot my grand daughter Nerjis Asif Shakirs akika , her head being shaved 5 day after her birth..
Even small cities I visit I search for the local barber ,,most of the barbers come from Uttar Pradesh and the barbers in Latur I met were predominantly Maharashtrians ..
At Banganga on Pitru Paksh if you really come early at 4 am you can see hordes of barbers doing religious tonsure I reached late 7 am so most of them had left and once I returned from shooting the Banganga tank there were just a few clusters and this is my last lot before I headed home. on my injured leg that later I found had a hairline fracture .. a very minor one .
I have taken almost 5 days to upload these pictures .. and I will shoot the Bengali Durga Puja from Sunday onwards ..
We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time
She Is 10 Year Old And Wont Be Going To Any Wedding ..She Might Be Married Next Time I Come To Shoot Here
Naye daur mein likhenge milkar nayi kahaani Hum hindustani, hum hindustani, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
Aaj puraani zanjeeron ko tod chuke hain
Kya dekhe us manzil ko jo chhod chuke hain
Chaand ke dar pe jaa pahuncha hai aaj zamaana
Naye jagat se hum bhi naata jod chuke hain
Naya khoon hai, nayi umangein, ab hai nayi jawaani
God Forgive Me For Shooting Your Lost Tribe On Earth ..Beggars Till Death Do Them Apart Beggars Since Birth
In The Early Days Of Blogging Media Treated Bloggers as Suicidal, Failed Writers And Fucked Photographers ..
