School Chalo

The School Chalo project is based around a dozen schools in New Delhi. For this series, Charles Fréger has produced group portraits with an original outlook on the surprising means of transport the children used every day to go to school. As usual, the photographer asks his subjects to pose and pays particular attention to their posture as well as the background. The schoolchildren parade in front of his lens, aboard a rickshaw, a motorbike or a simple bicycle. Displayed in a primary school playground, the pictures of these Indian schoolchildren show the youngest visitors some extraordinary ways of getting to school.
