India is so big and so diverse, it is difficult to sum it up in a sentence or two. Suffice to say that for a photographer it provides endless opportunities - it's at once colourful, chaotic and an assault on the senses, it's a mixture highly developed technology against a background of many thousands of villages whose way of life has changed little over many centuries. It's also noteworthy for it's magnificent and splendid forts, palaces and temples, it's arid deserts, forested hills and snowcapped mountains - all providing a backdrop for a friendly and engaging people.
