Oscar Valero Thomas made this shot on December 2013, from a motorcycle taxi in the streets of Bangalore, India.

The picture captures a multiple composition of colours, faces, expressions, feelings, sights and movements.The ritual depicted by this photograph might be interpreted as a procession with the aim of guiding a central figure: the young woman in the middle of the frame. The priest, the leader,instructs the crowd formed by older women, who help to complete the public worship.

The ritual is unknown to the foreign eyes, however, this picture explains the solidarity, guidance, suffering, attention, discipline, preparation and liturgy of one second in the streets of Bangalore, possessed by the eyes of Oscar Valero seated on a fast motorcycle taxi.

This photo is the dissection of a moment.
