Series of images
The photographs from India are displayed in series of more than 400 images in sceneries from small villages to larger cities. The photos are ranging from majestic landscapes and cityscapes to intimate portraits, and each picture convey a story in the photograph.
With a focus on humanity and diversity the aim of his documentary photography is to describe these topics in mainly people and landscapes.

I wanted to reveal the presence in my images, to show under which circumstances the Indians are working. With long and monotonous working hours, that can surprise me as a west-european citizen, this story is worth telling.”
