These images of India were taken during the 1990’s, using a manual Olympus. Everything was so different then. Digital cameras were unheard of – and India was still a country where the streets were filled with people, not cars, and where everyday scenes were a mixture of hard reality and other worldly surrealistic. Anya and I were regularly visiting Indian then, trekking in the high altitude Tibetan Buddhist areas of the Indian Himalaya and afterwards, travelling by train and bus over the plains of India – north and south, east and west.
These are some of the images I took during those journeys – in black and white.
