A life into the water.
Pushkar, it has been raining during 15 hours, making a small flood. The water was running down to the holy lake situated underneath the village, and this man putting his head into the falls.

David Schwebel
Born on October 23, 1990 in Paris, France. He started photography, by shooting his parents with his father’s camera. He mostly photographs people in their daily life, trying to catch a bit of emotion in their banal gestures, but also working on creating his own photograph by directing his models and topics. He’s currently studying films at the university of Paris 8. His universe has been influenced by many different kinds of photographers, from Robert Doisneau to David Lachapelle passing through JR.
