Kashmir & Ladakh

In 2004 I lived in Srinagar Kashmir working for a trekking and tourism company. I had the opportunity to live with a local family & live up the local life, which gave me access to many photographic opportunities. From 1998 to 2001 I shot & developed film photography. I picked up the camera again while living here in north India. Only this time it was digital. This marked the beginning of a journey that continues today…

Kashmir is often called the Venice of the East. To learn more about that, go visit! Ladakh is further north. The people there are of Tibetan descent. It’s a fascinating corner of the world that’s hard to believe still exists the way it does.
