India: Stories and Portraits

Jaipur, India


I can't say enough about how happy the camera made the kids.


I've just returned from traveling 20 days through Northern India and have begun diving into the multitudes of photos that I shot. Words cannot describe the experiences that I had. India was absolutely unlike anywhere I've ever visited. The extreme congestion of people, the dirt, the filth, the nonstop blaring horns, the reckless drivers, the staggering contrast between wealth and absolute poverty and misery.


I was overwhelmed by the people of India. I was amazed at their kindness, curiosity, and an almost sort of innocence. India was an extreme overload of the senses, to say the least. I approached my photography a little differently on this trip. Instead of trying to take photos of India, I wanted to take photos about India. I hope my work is able to show what I mean. | facebook | twitter
