What a grand ending for Lotus Makeup India Fashion week spring/summer 19. More than 40 designers came together to celebrate love, colour and the historic section 377 judgement of 2018. The backstage was no less than colourful pride parade. I feel extremely lucky to witness and capture these beautiful moments at backstage and sharing all of these with you guys.
Zee Jaipur Literature Festival the annual literary festival happens every year in the heart of pink city Jaipur, Rajasthan. As the festival is just 3 days away so I thought this would be the right time to publish the portrait series which I shot last year in 2016. This year is going to be special as it also marks the 10th anniversary of the festival.There is something mesmerizing about the festival which drags me to Jaipur every year ever since I first volunteered in 2012. The people, the culture & the music everything is so perfect. Whether it’s the diggipuri chai, the venue diggi palace, clueless crowd or the beautiful voice of anchor Catriona Mitchell, I love everything about the festival.
Last year I thought to do black & white series of portraits capturing the important faces of festival in 2016 starting from the festival director William Dalrympal to controversial indian columnist Shobha De. I felt very lucky to capture these intriguing faces very closely. Every portrait is very special for me & I am very proud to share this photo series with all of you.
‘Style’ a term used many times when we read a fashion magazine or when we talk about fashion in general. As I always love documenting street fashion at the fashion weeks I thought to try out something new which defines the term ‘style’ more than clothes. This photo essay focuses on interesting faces I met at the fashion week & the result is below.
