This image is from the Moonlight Cinema in Kolkata, India. In a way, this photograph is a lie. There were at least ten people watching me when I took this image. I only had about fifteen minutes between the shows in order to shoot this image, and I was lucky the owner let me do it. Most of these small, single screen cinemas are closing down, as the new mega-plexes move in. Getting permission to photograph was very hard, especially in Mumbai.
