Journeying through a mystical land

Journeying through a mystical land

A remote region of high mountains, pristine nature, ancient villages and... one of the most dangerous roads in the world to get there. That’s what I knew about Tusheti. Oh, and there was supposed to be a cultural festival too. 

The dream travel photography project

The dream travel photography project

Imagine you're asked to photograph at one of your favourite destinations. It's for a company you really like. You get to use a camera that’s not even released yet and you’re given plenty of creative freedom. On top of everything, you get paid well too. 

Iron workers & rural roads

Iron workers & rural roads

My love affair with South Gujarat continues. Having ridden back and forth here so much, I’ll miss the roads that go through it. They’re special. Different to many other roads of India that I mostly associate with hell.

On sugar & story-telling

On sugar & story-telling

I liken much of my travels to one giant scouting trip. I want to see as many places around the world as possible. But my ultimate intention is to come back to the best of the places and shoot in more depth. 

Off to the camel races

Off to the camel races

When one camel took off, all others followed. The camel riders turned back every few seconds, as if to smirk, to make sure that other competitors were eating the sand that their camels kicked up. Each man with a whip in hand, legs flailing sideways, airborne above his camel’s hump. Sure it was a false start, but, those who were already ahead didn’t care. Adrenaline took over. It was their time for glory. 

Strolling through Van city

Strolling through Van city

Van is not the kind of city you'd hang out in without a reason. At least not me. Considering that Van doesn't really have any famous attractions and it's in Turkey, a country with possibly more historic monuments and beautiful scenery than… well anywhere I can think of except India, why would you want even visit

Mount Ararat, sheep crossings & the welcoming Kurds

Mount Ararat, sheep crossings & the welcoming Kurds

Mount Ararat appeared out of nowhere as we drove towards the Eastern Turkish city of Van. You could tell it was enormous. We were still so far away, yet it was already visible and its snow-capped peak towered above anything around it.

The Georgian valleys and Kars region

The Georgian valleys and Kars region

From Cappadocia we headed to the North of Turkey. A quick border crossing to Georgia and back had Tanya’s visa renewed. Georgia is a country which I really, really want to travel around, but, when it’s warmer and less wet.
