About the Work
“Such a cool picture. The well-dressed people perched against the fence only metres from the river, waiting for the boat to come in. The two cars are cool, especially the little one. I'm pretty sure I've stood in the same spot and been fishing also.” – Ritesh Verma, ‘My Choice’ December 2021
