Kashmir: Faces & Places
Kashmir is a magnificent region of India.
Referred to as a tropical paradise in old literature, there is no wonder why it has been the subject of many disputes and is now divided between India and Pakistan.
Kashmir is surrounded by Himalayan Mountain Ranges whose rivers have created large, beautiful lakes. I was so taken by the gorgeous scenery and by the warmth, openness and beauty of the people, who have gone through many conflicts.
I wasn’t sure what I would experience in Kashmir and found the people to be open, gentle, endearing, and ready to embrace a new, modern society. I was interested by their culture and their tumultuous history but I left hopeful for a new, peaceful and good future. I hope my images help express the heart and the soul of these fascinating people and their beautiful land.
