Dick Doughty, Managing Editor Saudi Aramco World started his workshop “Portraits of Committments” today at Pathshala South Asia Media Academy.
There is always a story within a story. Today’s story comes from photographer and my colleague at Drik, Saikat Mojumder. He remembers how as a student of Pathshala during Chobi Mela V he followed Dick Doughty’s workshop and how it turned out to be a great experience for him.
While doing a portrait of a midwife for the workshop, he was inspired to do one of his best photo stories — “Life Born in a Slum.” For this story he says he followed a pregnant woman for six months. “I now understand the feelings a woman has about a life growing in her, the reality of motherhood – for me it was an unforgettable experience and my thanks to Dick Doughty for the training
