Doesn’t it make us curious and a little envious when we see our Facebook and Instagram feed flooded with the travel photos of our friends? And the urge for travelling and adventure enter our mind. A single picture can capture so many stories and expressions, which is why those who love to travel also love to do photography. They have this knack of looking at things in a different way. They are explorers. They capture through their lens the uniqueness of their thoughts.
As Aaron Siskind has rightly quoted, “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
One of our esteemed guests Mr. Donald Lyon shared these pictures which he has named as ‘India and her people’, clicked during his visit to India. Just look at these pictures, aren’t they actually a true representation of an Indian village?
Photography like this grants us access, an insight into the unknown world, a reflection of cultures giving us a different perspective. Photography is not only about capturing the beauty of the place while travelling and collecting memories but if the photographer has that vision and imagination it will show and tell you more than just a pretty landscape. Here are some more pictures which will make you believe it.
