I'm not 100 percent sure what is going on in this picture, but it looks like a good time! The subject in the center of the frame only works for me because of his emotion and that you do get a sense that this is an "organized group." While this image isn't exceptional, I think it's effective because you really feel what's going on. The actual concept of a laughing club seems a little forced to me unless these people are REALLY funny, but other than a couple of members of the group who look like they're working at it, it seems that laughter really is contagious. It worked in Mary Poppins, why not India? Laugh on.
Members of a laughing club laugh during a morning session in Calcutta, India, Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2006. The group uses humor and laughter as a means of therapy.
