Photo of the Week: Cowboy and Child

Vinesh Rajpaul


This term, we are featuring photographs by Vinesh Rajpaul, an Oxford student originally from South Africa, who spends much of his free time pursuing his passion for photography. Details of his work and competition successes can be found on his website.

Vinesh says about this photo: The image shows a Lisboeta in what appears to be a traditional cowboy costume. He is seen comforting his crying daughter, who had tripped and hurt herself. I shot this from low on the ground in order to capture what I think is an interesting perspective of the pair, and to frame them a little more dramatically against a clouded sky.

If you have a photo to submit, please email Benedict Morrison.
