Vogue Oct 2010: Indian Icons

One of my favorite shoots in India so far, the Indian Icons story for Vogue was a who's who of Indian culture, business and art. Shot over 2 days at Mehboob studios in Bandra, I was honored to be photographing such luminaries.

The theme of the story was Indian Icons and their chosen successors. The very best in their fields, these eight people were asked to name the best person most likely to carry their legacy forward. Enjoy!

Hey Martin,

Really enjoy your work man. I've been checking in on your blog since your BC days (man in a monkey suit? :)) and big lights far away.

Take care.

Martin, just visited your facebook page too. Mind blowing works. Some of them are my favorite celebrities. Very glad to know that you moved to India and capturing many in the best way possible. Hope you are having a gr8time. I have always believed light can be best used...but for now only using the dim lights I get to. Am in Richmond BC. Cheers.
