Dear Bruce,
No doubt about it, your an amazing photographer theres nothing more I could add that what these kind people have already said about your work, do me the honour if your ever in dubai, and want to go around, id be happy to show you around, from the deserts to the mountaina tribes and the asian fild streets of my country. I am adding you to my favorite artist, i wait in anticipation for your books to be published.
Yours in trust
Guest 25-Apr-2010 02:11
I know absolutely nothing about photography but have gone through the works of quite a few people. I think you're absolutely incredible and have a true gift for capturing the best a persons attitude has to offer.
God bless you buddy, cheers.

Hi Bruce,

Michele sent over this link to your portfolio... really beautiful images!
Im going to try to get in contact in regards to another stream of photography :)
It was nice meeting you over Christmas.
Take Care,
Andrea M.

Your photos are absolutely stunning. This is the style of photography that I have wanted most to become better at, after a couple hours going through your photos I'm truly inspired.
priteesh 28-Sep-2008 15:14
I assume some street must have low light situation but your images have come out nicely. a wide angle with image stabilisation would have better but i have 28-105 f/3.5-4.5 and a cropped body canon 30d. i dont like flash but do u think i need a flash or should i go for tamron f/2.8 which costs nearly same. Im going to shoot mostly in evening, and i cant afford more than that.i ll appreciate your suggestion or if there is any other way around ?

I cant afford image stabilised lens
I don’t want to use tripod
I can increase iso but i also want quality images i can use noise reduction but don’t like.

When I get photoshop and a new camera, I'm going to model my work after you.

I've browsed randomly through your gallery. Your so original composition skills and that gritty BW knocks me out. Signature photography. A big V for your whole gallery.
I'll be around whenever you load new photos, no doubt.

Subhash Banerjee 02-Jun-2006 18:24
You have done a great job. If you do find some time in the near future for travel to India again, I will like you to take some more pictures of different cities so that people from other countries can get a clear view of India with the contrast of culture, diferences of rich and poor, technology and religion etc.
Very good start.

Beautiful work here and sobering at the same time. I was unaware of many of the tragedies (e.g. glue sniffers) and these pictures are top notch. Continue your great work for all of those who would otherwise never know of beautiful India.
Saurabh 10-Mar-2006 13:46
Hi Bruce..... superb work

Guest 08-Mar-2006 08:40
Your work is magnificent, Bruce. You have captured your country as only someone who has experienced far more of it could. I see here both India's pain and it's glory. Wonderful faces, glimpses into everyday life with the great color and soul in your amazing photojournalistic journies.
Thank you for posting them for us.
Gaurav 03-Mar-2006 05:28
You have such amazing pictures in your galleries. I completely agree that is MY TRUE INDIA. Keep up the good work.
Guest 28-Feb-2006 14:42
what a treasure trove of galleries you have here. Captivating shots of people. Makes me wonder what kind of thoughts run thru their minds. I like to take grab shots of people during my travels. Your galleries have inspired me to do a much better job in my next travel! Congrats on the fantastic work.
Luis Arturo Torres27-Feb-2006 19:10
Excellent Galleries.
I really enjoy each and every photo I saw.
Incredible pictures of people, representing their feelings.
Lovely work. I am very impressed Bruce. Very impressed. Your work is original and unique.
Guest 23-Feb-2006 17:59
My Lord! This work has taken on a journey through a country I may never see. The journalistic ability allowed me to feel the pain and struggles in each shot. I must say that beauty of the Indian people is breathtaking and you have captured it superbly. Your eye for contrast and dept enriched each photo and sucked me right into the moment. I hope that I have a chance some day to visit India. I will review this gallery again and again for inspiration. You have an awesome talent.
Martin Crespo23-Feb-2006 12:47
Hello Bruce.

Love your portaits and your approach with the people, the extreme lights that you use many times and your sensivity.

The level of trust your subjects have in you is simply amazing. These are fantastic images and makes anything I do feel trivial. Some day I aspire to capture people in the way you have. Simply wonderful images to view and absorb.

Mihir 19-Jun-2005 06:43
Hi Bruce,

I am a Pune native but have been in the US for the last four years...haven't been able to make a trip home in all that time. I became interested in photography only about a year back and all I have been able to see of India is through photos on pbase or other sites. I must mention that my perspective has completely changed. I can see things about Indians which I never saw in the 24 years I lived there. To be honest, while in India I used to find beauty only in people who kept themselves well...which is a shame. But I can now really see the beauty and innocence in poor people too. The best thing I have learnt is that they are humans just like me.

Another thing I noticed is that unlike many other artists who photograph Indians, you have not unnecessarily focused on poverty. True, poverty is abundant and overwhelming, but I think India is more about what you've shown in your pictures. They are poor too, but I think most have a livelihood well enough of food, shelter and clothing.

I don't know much about photography, but your works feels truly superlative. I especially like the low light photos. Also, the infra red portraits are very sharp.

Best regards,
Neti 09-Jun-2005 10:09
Hi Bruce,

I stumbled onto your gallery when I was googling to get the Pincode for sahyadri school and I must thank serendipity! Your gallery is awesome and I spent a lot of time here. I think you have exeptional talent and I found all of your pics captivating.

Warm regards,
Guest 23-May-2005 14:24
Bruce, good to see you've updated after a long hiatus. Your portraits have improved greatly. Thanks for sharing. BTW, what do you do for a living in India? Just curious.

Guest 29-Apr-2005 06:27
hi bruce,
i am a ex-student of the first batch of Sahyadri School. Your pictures are so telling.
thanks so much for bringing back memories to me. What made you take a trip to SS? I'll surely pass around the word abt your images to my former classmates.
Nice images once again....
Angel Gonzalez Molero25-Apr-2005 11:58

Peter Chou11-Feb-2005 00:05
Outstanding social documentary you have in your gallery! I really envy your proximity to such great subjects and your ability to capture them with such proximity and empathy! I am into documentary photography myself and I am humbled by your corpus of work. Do take a look at my humble gallery and I appreciate your advice and comments.
Guest 21-Jan-2005 14:11
Your photos are amazing. I have you marked as one of my favoites and I'm always excited to see any new work you have posted. There is so much emotion in every picture but I wouild love for you to write a little more about them. You have an eye to capture the raw beauty and most people wouldn't need words, but I enjoy reading about the people in your pictures and I try to get a grasp of what you were feeling at the time. Thanks for sharing your work and please keep it up.

Vincent Belford23-Dec-2004 14:09
Just an awesome collection of photography. I’ll be back for a closer look soon.
Toshi Clark 17-Dec-2004 03:17

Your portrait work is outstanding. I have a friend who has traveling around India for several months, and the combination of his writings and your photos gives great color and substance to the land and people.
Guest 14-Dec-2004 18:57
this is among the best pbase galleries and a great body of photojournalistic work. it's a very non-judgemental, raw, yet sensitive look into this beautiful culture. i hope to see more of it at many angles and aspects.

Guest 13-Aug-2004 19:25
Bruce, Honestly there are very few times that I come across a gallery of fotos where I literally go through every one, but this IS definitely one of those times. Your portrait work is simply outstanding... no nonsense fotos that speak IN VOLUMES to the heart of the viewer. And your documentary fotos are riveting. You really do a fine job of pulling me into each and every foto... telling me an incredibly rich story about life and about being human in difficult situations. To say I'm impressed would be a categorical understatement. Fantastic work AND vision! Bryan
Zane Paxton19-May-2004 06:45

I remain touched, moved and inspired by your work. Words seem inadequate to express the power and depth of your images. I will check back often.
Peterfree13-May-2004 19:57

I was recently made aware of your work and sent a link to this site. I did not see another way to contact you so I will leave this in your guestbook. I handle PR work for a non-profit org. based in the US but whose work is in India. Our mission is to provide educational support and structure for children who are blind, deaf, mute, or mentally retarded. We are very interested in your photos and perhaps working with you. Might you be interested? If so, please feel free to contact me at
Bharath 28-Apr-2004 20:19

I frequently view quite a bit of photography produced by friends and others and on the internet. However nothing I've looked at ever compelled me to dabble in photography as much as these portraits you shot.

Congratulations. That was an inspiring performance .
Guest 20-Mar-2004 03:55
I realy like your photos.i vote your gallery :)
Guest 10-Mar-2004 16:57
Hey Bruce
Thanks for taking time to check out my photos at
I was just wondering how hard is it to capture these images and what are the legalities involved? What techniques do you use when approaching people and asking them to take pictures and is there paperwork required when posting these pictures online or using for commercial purposes. I'm kind of new to photography and I have a greater interest in portraits then still-life, yet I don't want to infringe on the right so of others by snapping away without asking permission. Yet I find when I ask others to take pictures than I lose some of the candidness that adds so much more to the photo to me. Do you have any insight or suggestions for me? Please feel free to drop me a line in my guestbook or email me at Take care and look forward to hearing from you.

Aron Digumarthi07-Mar-2004 22:03
