horn please : the complete photo series
I recently posted about this photography documentary series -- Horn Please" -- on truck drivers in India, developed and shot by Dan Eckstein, but the complete collection is now live and you should definitely check it out.
Over the course of a 2500km journey, I was lucky enough to meet many of these drivers and immerse myself in the culture of the Indian highway. These men spend long hours on the road so their trucks act as a second home, which they take great pride in. The interior and exterior of the trucks are colorfully decorated with paintings, stickers, garlands and shrines. This adornment is not only an expression of individualism but also a unique form of folk art.
It is beautiful portraiture and a memorable documentation of these people and places.
