We gathered the work of several photographers, who had travelled to the South Asian country and captured images of the locals. We collected their knowledge about the country and their impressions of the people who call it their home.
There are more than 7 billion people, living in different regions of the planet, speaking various languages. No matter how different we are, there are still details that connect us, that allow us to communicate with each other and establish a connection. Using humanity and the sense of wonder to get to know others is the core value that NOMADSofORIGIN celebrates, and so, we wanted to take you on a visual journey to India to you it to you through the diversity of its people.
'While exploring an ancient fort in India, I came across this man and his friends. His appearance brought up a lot of questions about his story. I approached him in hopes of talking with him and getting a picture. I learned quickly he did not speak English.
While trying to talk with him a large group of his friends approached me, and we began talking. Immediately, a connection formed. We laughed and took pictures together. This image will forever remind me of our need for connection with others. Companionship is formed through emotion and is not always heard. This image communicates experience.'
