  1. I think it is a great honor Getty has chosen your images! However, Getty is not much for giving enough photo credit and photo credit doesn’t pay the bills. Unless you are just looking for “exposure” I would ask if they are going to purchase the right to use each image commercially. Otherwise it’s maximum gain for them with little benefit to you. Just my opinion of course 🙂 The images are awesome and worth a dollar amount 🙂

  2. Ah, the sweet taste of success, eh! Good on ya, Vikram!

    Fantastic!!! Thanks for sharing this. Congratulations

  5. I was looking at these earlier, and was so impressed by the contrasts – not only of the light, but of the culture and the climate … in some O could feel the opressive heat, in others the coolness of the water.
    The shots take in the streets contrast the distance we still have to go to free ourselves from social separation.
    I saw a TV prodcution called “The Shipbreakers” about the daily life in the shipyard (if you could even call them that) in Alang, India, some of your photos have that feel ….
