Thousands of pilgrims, villagers and herdsmen with cattle, horses and camels descend on Pushkar in the Hindu month of Kartik (October/November) for the annual fair. This holy city in Rajasthan is one of Asia’s largest camel fairs and it is estimated that over 25,000 will change hands during the course of the fair.
The bustling activity, colour, sights and smells are definably Indian. In this collection of photographs I have sought to portray the herdsmen and their livestock camped around the city, through a series of informal portraits and observed moments of everyday life.
