© K. L. Kamat
Road Side Magazine Vendor
Woman Selling Used Magazines by the Roadside
Picture taken by Kamat in the locality of Malleswaram in Banglore, December 2001

In February 2002, the photographer noticed for a few days that the woman in the picture was not selling magazines anymore, and her spot was occupied by a different, younger woman. When inquired, he was told that Dhanushkoti, the woman shown in the photograph had died, and her daughter-in-law had taken over the roadside business. Kamat then printed a copy of the only photograph of the woman and gave it to the family.

As destiny would have it, a couple of days later, Kamat himself passed away.

And we do not have even one photograph of Kamat working in his shop.
