The en­chanted vale

Down to Earth - - ON THE WEB -

Down To Earth's photographer Vikas Choud­hary trav­els to Lower Suban­siri district of Arunachal Pradesh. Here lies a val­ley whose res­i­dents are happy, self­suf­fi­cient and tra­di­tional de­spite their contact with the out­side world. In his pho­to­graphs, Choud­hary cap­tures the unique cul­ture of the Apatani tribe: their com­mu­nity-tended and non-mech­a­nised paddy fields, the fish reared in them, cui­sine, hand­i­crafts and al­most-idyl­lic ev­ery­day life. It is like Choud­hary has stepped into a Shangri La.
