To me, this picture is a perfect moment. So representative of my time in this breathtakingly gorgeous valley full of warm smiles and spiced teas, Mughal gardens and endless serenity. As a photographer, I am always looking to capture beauty. That intention is what drives me, makes me push boundaries and discover hidden layers of meaning in the everyday. And then sometimes I don’t even have to look. That moment of stillness, of perfection is simply presented to me - in the guise of a weather-beaten face on the side of the road in a faded Kashmiri pheran, and I am stunned.
A short piece on my experience doing the 365 project that I have been documenting on the blog as well.
