Click to preview India: Thousand Words - Hardback Edition photo book

Once upon a time 23-year-old Erica Derrickson set out for India with a plane ticket, her life in a backpack, and a burning desire to explore. Her first book, India: A Thousand Words, presents Erica’s photographic journey over a period of two months as she traveled from ocean to city, from desert to swamp, from the mountains to the marketplace and everywhere in between. Vibrant with color and detail, Thousand Words depicts the beauty of India through the eyes of Erica Derrickson with a raw intensity that intends to shed light on the enigmatic allure of this magnificent country.


About the Author

Erica Derrickson
erica_d Often Boston
I love seeing the world anew through the lens of my camera. I find that there's something very raw yet articulated about the art of photography, and I love how it facilitates an experience of the beauty of the world in a whole new way. I feel very passionate about sharing the beauty I see in my world, because I sincerely believe that people derive value from being exposed to beauty. My intention with my photography is to bring value to the lives of my audience. If nothing more, I would hope that my photography might inspire my audience to gain a better appreciation for the beauty in their own worlds.
