Incredible India, Indeed!
How to describe a country like India, in a few words only?
The country with the most diversity of People, Cultures, Religions, Landscapes, Languages and Traditions. A general introduction of India is almost impossible to do…
India. Mother India.
She is everything and has everything but she also, often, has nothing.
She is home to the richest families as well as the poorest, most unfortunate and damned ones. She has children sleeping on king beds as others on street cardboards palaces. Some of Her children study, belly full, while others stride across the streets all day long to sell anything possible in the hope of a meal.
She has Casts and their ‘traditional’ social injustice. She has Hope and she has Despair.
But in all cases, she has Life, a strong instinct for Survival and great ingenuities to get situations better.
India is real and multiple, the true Country of contrasts, of the so many realities, sides, colours and faces.
Diversity is indeed what maybe defines Her the best : in its life conditions as well as in its face features and clothes, its traditions and habits. Not to forget Her Landscapes.
She is absolutely fascinating and bewitching for all kinds of travellers, but for the photographer, she is undoubtedly, the Mother of Travel Photography.
She is the Past and the Now.
She is modern as traditional, entrepreneurial as spiritual. She excels in Engineering and IT but she often has the most irrational and dangerous installations. Worldwide, She is admired for her Technological knowledge as well as studied for her Spiritual traditional practices. On the understanding of the complex Human Nature, She has some of the smartest biologists as some of the finest yogis to experience it. She has the Biology and she has the Ayurveda. The modern Science and the scientific Yoga.
She is extreme.
Extremely rich, extremely poor. Extremely hot, extremely cold. Extremely ancient, extremely modern.
There, you experience the whole range of emotions. You are confronted to the wide variety of the human condition : the abundance and the misery, the pleasure and the survivance, the health and the diseases, Life and Death.
She hides nothing. Everything is there, outside, under your eyes.
The beautiful and fascinating, the ugly and the unbearable.
For this, you love her and you hate her in the same time. Some people say, you love India or you hate it. But for me, you feel both.
Because she is extreme, she is real. Because she is so full of diversity, she is complete. Because she is hard, she makes you soft and compassionate. She is mischievous so she gets you alert and sharp. And She is loving and welcoming so she gets you melt. She awakes all the best in the human heart.
For all this, she is Mother India, the Mother of all conditions, lives and spirits. She is The Spirit…
Once you step foot on her ground, you are bound to her forever. She will call you back, again and again. At least for us, it is how it happened and still does.
And with all her diversity and richness of People, she is the dream country for Portraits and Street Photography. She also attracts all sorts of travellers, some of the most incredible and eccentric people as some of the most straight and peaceful persons you’ll get to know in the world. So as a storyteller, you’ll fill a whole book of these fascinating stories you came across with. And appart from that, with all her geographical differences, she is a great land for Landscape Photography as well.
In a few words she is, also, the Queen of Travel Photography. For all photographers, amateurs or professional, India Photos are an absolute and intemporal must.
