Snake Charmers in Jaipur


Met these snake charmers in Jaipur, India – not an ordinary event for me, but I sat down with them and picked up a snake. Later I learned that the snake charmers remove the fangs of the cobras that they capture, so the snakes die from internal poisoning after a few weeks. The photos are scans from film shot with a pocket camera and the quality is debatable…
