Independence Day in India

August 15th is observed as a National Holiday in India, the nation’s  independence  from the British Empire in 1947. That day Jawaharial Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, raised the Indian National Flag above the Lahore Gate of the Red Fort in Delhi.

In honor for the Indian people I’d like to share some portraits of the hard working Indian’s  , who are the most admirable entrepreneurs of maintaining  little businesses every street corner to have meet their ends.  And my admiration of  a most beautiful culture in their authentic way of life.

In my photography work I thrive to capture the soul of the moment. I let my images speak the language of stillness and vibration, with that I leave my audience to find their own reflections and emotions. My approach in my work is to lead other's to their own imagination and freedom of dreams. I invite you to visit my web site
