Art Description

Photography: Digital and Photo on Paper and Canvas.

People in Rajasthan are frequently sleeping on rooftops, because it's cooler than inside. Many of them can't afford air-conditioners in their homes and with temperatures rising as high as 50°C (122°F) it's easy to see why spending the night outdoors is a much better idea. These houses are located just under the Mehrangarh Fort in the "Blue City" part of Jodhpur.

It was also here where we only had a fan on the ceiling in our hostel. It was so hot we couldn't sleep. The walls capture so much heat during the day that in night the temperature in the room stays at around 40°C (104°F).

Taken with a DSLR and 85 mm lens, the photograph is reproduced on archival Canson Rag Photographique 310g Matte Paper. It can be also printed on Canson Photoart Pro Canvas 395g (the price is the same). It comes without a frame and without a white border (but if you need the white border, just send me an email). The size is approximately 16 x 24 inches (42 x 59,4 cm).
