In 2006, I visited India for the first time. India is the country of my ancestors, yet I had never been back to the roots. Although this was a very short journey, I tried to capture the beauty in the history and people of this place.

India is filled with life. Emotions are visible there, colors, happiness, sadness, noises, music. The images in this book are from Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and Pushkar. This short adventure was most certainly the most interesting two weeks of my life. In India I made new friends, embraced new perspectives about life, realized the great contrast between India and western cultures. The journey ignited the desire to go back one day, to learn about this place of infinite knowledge and culture, more than I ever imagined. This book also marks the first volume in a series of personal work.

Namasté.

About the Author

Kevin Bhookun
islander0276 Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

Kevin has lived in a number of countries where he acquired a connection with different societies and cultures that enhanced his ability to see things differently.

He studied photography in the state of Michigan. He now lives in Canada and works as a Freelance Photographer. He runs a small home studio for portraits and covers the documentary and stories; but his passion remains in producing fine art images. Although most of his work, including this book, has now shifted to digital photography, Kevin believes that a variety of capture methods does not alter a visual signature.

Kevin specializes in fine art black & white photography and focuses mostly on alternative processes and unique characteristics of the image.

He experiments with various types of cameras from 35mm to large formats, toy cameras, pinhole, anything that can capture light onto celluloid or in digital format.

This is one of my favorite photography books. Through Bhookun's eyes, we are taken on an intimate journey in all corners of India. Compositionally delightful in every way, large format photographs celebrate the land, the architecture and the diverse people of India. The portraits are especially stunning and convey a powerful mix of emotions. The remarkable quality of Bhookun's first photography book has captured the elusive essence of India and the immensely diverse Indian people. Anyone who loves India will enjoy this gorgeous book. A definite candidate for anyone's wish list.
