I finally made it to India! So happy to have visited this magical country all be it for a brief time. It has given me a taste the country and left me wanting more. With limited shooting time I decided to take a car away from the obvious and less interesting tourist spots. Instead I headed straight to ‘real’ India which lay about 3 hours drive South West of Bengaluru (aka Bangalore). Real India took the form of the countryside, its people and its small rural villages. It was an amazing experience to see life in these places. Houses were made of wood, mud, cow dung, straw, banana leaves, anything really. They were simple shelters and housed many generations of a family in what seemed to be a harmonious and happy environment. It’s a simple life and people were incredibly happy and friendly. They graciously let me experience and photograph their lives all be it for a very short time.

Here are a few photographs from my short visit. India, I will return.
