homELearning Activity (S1-08: 07 Ng Kok Yin)

Part 1:

Who is/are the focus/focuses in the image? How do you know that?
The focuses in the image is the rickshaw puller, as he is in the forefront of the picture, such that the rest of the picture seems like the background.

Describe the characters/setting.
People with an average income will be able to afford a car, or a motorcycle at least. It is important to own a vehicle as being in a big city, where you have to travel often and usually far. However, there are some people who cannot afford to own a vehicle, and hence rely on public transport. The people who are able to afford ,will sit taxi but some rely on the few rickshaw pullers left in such modern days. 

What kind of story do you think lies behind the image? Explain.
I think that the story that lies behind this image is that in some countries, the income gap is huge. The taxi driver is at least able to buy a car to drive customer to their destination. But for the rickshaw puller, they have to use their strength to pull their customer whether if they are fat or thin whether in rain or shine.

What do you think is/are the message/s the photographer is seeking to convey through the image?
I think that he is trying to get the public to know and understand that when people are poor, they get poorer as they are unable to let their children attend school to pursued education.

What do you like/dislike about the image? What would you have done differently if you were the photographer?
I would have taken the rickshaw puller moving next to a taxi with a passenger in it.
