Indian man outside his home in central India. 2013

I met this man and his family during my visit to India a few years ago. They showed a couple of us around their home and described their daily lives. This family had no running water or electricity. They had a well out back which they used for all their bathing, drinking and cooking needs. Inside was a "fire pit" on the floor of the kitchen that was used for cooking. Nothing was wasted. Even the charcoal from the burned wood was put to good use.

It is the expression that he has in this photo that I personally find captivating.
