Of A Different Stripe
To outsiders, the region around the Bay of Bengal can best be described as overwhelming. Exotic to even the most experienced traveler it is an assault on the senses: the noise, the smells, the vibrant colors, the seemingly never-ending crowds pushing against you. For many it can become too much, but the chaos is also what makes it so special and unique. Life in the streets can be felt and seen like nowhere else - so alive and vibrant.
The title of my project “Of A Different Stripe” refers to the uniqueness and strangeness of this region, at least to outsiders. The photos I’ve captured are not staged or posed, here there is no need. In a land of countless Gods and languages, the streets are theater, the performances one of a kind. I’ve done my best to capture this chaotic beauty.
