At Uppal Idols Market

I went to the Uppal Idols market in Hyderabad a few days back. Many artisans live here by the road, earning their living through making and selling idols. It’s a hazardous way of life, due to the constant exposure to lead and zinc pigments in the paint, right from childhood.

Yet, the people were very happy to pose and get photographed 🙂 The following photographs are of some of the people I met there.
