A most exciting time in the golden desert sands of the Thar desert with these two people who are so-much-in-love – would be any photographer’s dream. Their chemistry brings alive every single picture and makes me so glad that I got to photograph them in such a gorgeous location. We spent three happy days in […]
February was like bittersweet chocolate. And I love that kind. I do. It took me, very briefly, to Serampore, and it made me realize, how much I want to spend months in Calcutta and its suburbs, not necessarily photographing its streets, people, food, and leftover colonial architecture, but absorbing the smells, sights, and sounds, the […]

Isn’t it ironic then, that he chose to send me a whole notebook’s worth of paper covered in poetry and what should fall off from between the leaves but dried pink bougainvillea. ‘How do I not […]
