back from Jaipur, Rajasthan

Just got back from Jaipur yesterday after shooting for my clients (now friends) at Anokhi. One of the great things about shooting out and about the countryside is the opportunity to grab a few portraits of the many great faces of this colorful part of India. I must say that Rajasthan could very well be the most photogenic state in the country.

Tonia and Jai came up with me and it was wonderful to again stay with Pritam, Rachel (and daughters) on their organic farm just outside Jaipur city. Now its back to work in the craziness of Mumbai!

Next trip is early september to Gujurat to shoot for the UK based NGO, Childreach.
