Christopher Pillitz: Asia

Image Copyright © Christopher Pillitz-All Rights Reserved

Christopher Pliilitz was born in Buenos Aires, and after graduating from a hotel management school, decided to begin a self-taught career as a photographer. Since then, he traveled to over 70 countries, photographing editorial and commercial assignments for a variety of clients.

He published a number of books, most notable of which is Brazil Incarnate; which delves into that country's body culture. He has now added another fillip to his body of work by being the primary photographer for the book China, People Place Culture History (to be reviewed tomorrow on TTP).

Notwithstanding, I chose the above photograph of an Indian woman bathing an elderly man (her father?), while a child looks on. It tells a story, doesn't it?

His website is replete with lovely photographs of Asia, Cuba and South America. Although his work on the China book is the reason for this post, have a good look at Road Movie, a wonderful gallery on his website that features photographs made during a road trip across South America:
