People of India

 

India is an amalgamation of so many beautiful ethnicities and cultures. Here are portraits shot during 2010 to 2016 around the rural part of nort-west India and the south India.

A human experience

 

What makes a good photograph? I knew that if I had stayed indoors with the studio equipment doing commercial and fashion work will not expose me to the wilderness of this planet. So I decided to break that monotonous lifestyle by backpacking away from home. I spend three months traveling in Rajasthan, Gujarati and Tamil Nadu in 2010.

People living in the villages or country side are very warm and welcoming unlike the big cities. They were hard working, humble and spend their time with their families. Most of them offered to come to their house for a meal and sometimes a free place to crash. In some of the places, there was no electricity, internet, sometimes no phones, people were living such content lives without much of technology.

 

I discovered beauty, humility and the world out there is not all that ugly as we imagine. There are a lot of happy people living just simple lives with what they have.

 

After this, I continued shooting people I was meeting, mostly in Tamil Nadu.
