  • INDIA: Stories and Portraits
     
    Traveling through India was unlike anything I've ever experienced. It's hard to put the intensity of it into words; the extreme congestion of people, the endless blaring horns, reckless drivers, the staggering contrast between wealth and absolute poverty and misery. It was all so real and shocking.
     
    India to me was very much about the people. It was about their kindness, their curiosity of the camera, their intense and revealing looks in the portraits, the excitement of the masses of children in having their picture taken. The people of India overwhelmed me with their affection, curiosity and an almost sort of innocence.

     
    India was an extreme overload of the senses.
  • Sunrise on the Ganges river
  • Taj Mahal mosque
  • From my window on an early morning train from Jaipur to Delhi
  • Puja ceremony on the Ganges river, an evening ceremony that honors the Hindu god Shiva. The candles, symbolic offerings to Shiva, are lit and then set free on the Ganges and contain a prayer of the person who set it afloat.
