It has almost been nine years since I was in India. I spent 3 weeks in Rahjastan traveling throughout the area. My time there was incredible. India by far is one of my favourite countries. As a photographer the photo opportunities were both generous and inspiring. This was one of the first times I spent time shooting street photography and people. For me, the photo above speaks to maternal love. You can see the mother's pride and protectiveness of her son.
I do not know what this little girl was looking at, however every photo I have of her has her looking backward. I love the contrast of the colours of her flowers against the blue backdrop.
This child was stunning. She was with her brother selling produce at the market. Her eyes were alive with life. I wonder were she is today. Is she married with her own children? I hope wherever she is she still has life in her eyes.
I shot this man early in the morning at a festival in the dessert. Early was around 6 am. The dessert area was crisp and starting to come to life as people began to commence their day.
This man was at the same market. I love the contrast of his skin against the bright red of his turban.
Cooking is one of my passions in life. Enjoying good food, pastries, chocolate and everything the French have to savor is my other. This should come as a surprise given my father chose my name after reading The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
I am a voracious reader and collector of cookbooks. Little did I know that all my grade school French lessons would come in handy one day.
