India: Stories and Portraits by navid j on Flickr.

In March, I traveled 20 days through Northern India and it was absolutely unlike anywhere or anything I’ve ever experienced. It’s hard to put the intensity of it into words; the extreme congestion of people, the endless blaring horns, the reckless drivers, the staggering contrast between wealth and absolute poverty and misery. It was all so very real and shocking.

India to me was very much about the people. It was about the kindness of the people and their curiosity of the camera, the intense and revealing looks in their eyes in the portraits, the excitement of the masses of children from having their picture taken. I was overwhelmed by the people of India. I was amazed at their kindness, curiosity and an almost sort of innocence.

India was an extreme overload of the senses. | facebook | twitter | behance
