ice-land; land of wonders and limitless amazement
iceland is known for its wonderful landscape, unpredictable weather and welcoming culture. as a kid i had always read about the land of ice and fire, but what i witnessed on that winter trip would far exceed my expectations. capturing the beautiful intensity of the scandinavian landscape was a humbling experience i will never forget .
the great lakes are special to me.
growing on an island in the middle of the indian ocean, i never thought that i would be capturing photos of these inland seas. the great lakes are more than just rolling waves, distant horizons and gusty winds. they allow us to reconnect with nature, be humbled by nature and a reminder that we should respect it.
canada has become my new home.
i have been lucky to experience my first snowfall, the maritimes, the mountains, the lakes and i am still slowly uncovering its hidden beauties.
latin america is one of the places my mind often wanders to.
i have been very lucky to grow up on a tiny island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. however the call of the unknown and need to explore the world was greater; i grew up exploring the world through various issues and volumes of the National Geographic. the lost city of machu picchu, the shores of santa theresa and salinas are just some the places i was fortunate enough to photograph.
mauritius is an amazing place i call home.
as terry pratchett said: "why do you go away? so that you can come back.so that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colours". the warm sand, blue ocean and green valleys... these are some of the things that made this trip back home special.
Ansel Adams described black & white photography as "departure from reality".
black & white photography is something that has always intimidated me. however after numerous trials and a bit of luck, black and white photography brings a new perspective to the photographs i capture and, as Adams saids, it brings me closer to another form of magic that "was not as complete as many imagine".
