The Tailor of Korgaon

We had a close shave with the barber of Korgaon sometime ago. Today we meet Suresh Hiroji, the tailor of Korgaon, an enchanting village in north Goa. Once the staple of all, rich and poor, bespoke has now gone out of fashion. Hiroji and his tribe are on their last legs but the perpetual grin on his visage is eternal.

The first two images below were taken in July this year. In the first, a candid seen from the street, the logo of the Merritt sewing machine invented by Isaac Singer is visible. The final image was made in 2009, at a shutter speed of 1/20s, a demonstration of the excellent image stabilization capabilities of Canon’s EF 24-105L lens.
