THE PEO­PLE OF IN­DIA

Fea­tured Pho­tog­ra­pher: Ric­cardo Man­tero

DRIFT Travel magazine - - Inside This Issue -

A fas­ci­nat­ing pho­to­graphic jour­ney.

A trav­eler by vo­ca­tion, and a pho­tog­ra­pher by pas­sion, Ric­cardo is based in Italy but is truly a ci­ti­zen of the world. Although the ma­jor­ity of his work fo­cuses on land­scapes and travel pho­tog­ra­phy, he loves shoot­ing peo­ple and street pho­tog­ra­phy. Ric­cardo never leaves home with­out at least one of his beloved Nikon DSLR cam­eras.

Pho­tog­ra­pher Notes: Look­ing in the deep­ness of the eyes of this age­less Sadhu, I can per­ceive ev­ery­thing which has be­witched me of In­dia - wis­dom, sad­ness, life, death, rich­ness, poverty, story, courage, tra­di­tion and the peo­ple. In­dia is an an­cient and s

Pho­tog­ra­pher Notes: (ABOVE) Dur­ing the Dalai Lama Speech at Thik­say Monastery in Ladakh, the sun at 3500mt above sea level was re­ally hot and strong. The peo­ple started to open their um­brel­las, and the scene en­riched it­self by in­cred­i­ble col­ors. (LEFT) A

Pho­tog­ra­pher Notes : (BE­LOW) I’ve been lit­er­ally hexed by the dresses of these women from Ladakh. They seemed hand­crafted with pre­cious silks and weaved in the most com­plex shapes. Here are three per­fect ex­am­ples, and when the sun rays hit their gar­ments,

Pho­tog­ra­pher Notes: This is the mag­nif­i­cent Har­mandir Sahib of Am­rit­sar, in the sa­cred City of the Sikhs - the most fa­mous gu­rud­wara in the world. I heard a lot about it, I’ve seen pho­tos, but un­til you get there and see with your own eyes, you can’t unde

Pho­tog­ra­pher Notes: (ABOVE) Women in the Jama Masjid, the big­gest mosque in Delhi, In­dia. The col­ors of the dresses and the dec­o­ra­tions are won­der­ful. Im­pos­si­ble to re­sist to steal just one mo­ment of their lives. (LEFT) Some­time you fine some­one so in­ter

Pho­tog­ra­pher Notes: Watch­ing the tele­vi­sion in Delhi is like ev­ery­where else in the world, but the col­ors of the house are not.

Pho­tog­ra­pher Notes: If you are in old Delhi in In­dia, and you need an hair­cut or a shave, no prob­lem. Check the side of the road and you will find an ex­cel­lent bar­ber­shop. Just sit down and let the bar­ber do his work, if you are un­sure, just look at the f

Pho­tog­ra­pher Notes: While wan­der­ing the roads of Delhi, it is easy to meet small groups of Sadhu and their fol­low­ers and get a bless­ing from them. It is also and a good habit to leave a lit­tle of­fer­ing for that.

In­dia is the cra­dle of the hu­man race, the birth­place of hu­man speech, the mother of his­tory, the grand­mother of le­gend, and the great- grand­mother of tra­di­tion. MARK TWAIN
