Everytime I go to India for a vacation I have to schedule atleast one shoot there. It is my favorite fabric to shoot against. Last time it was at Chor Bazaar which was quite an experience and this time it was at a construction site in Raey Road and the slums outside of it. It is always a huge experience to shoot in India. Everything becomes such a spectacle and mostly in a fun way. Everyone wants to participate, like my sister's driver in the first few pictures who decided to wear my sunglasses and act cheeky, the construction workers at my friend's site who were all to excited to pose and then the ladies in the slums who kept asking me to fry their fish. It was awesome. While shooting in the slums outside we [as usual] had a whole mob of people gather around just watching, which stalled the traffic behind them and eventually attracted the attention of some cops who came by to stop us from taking pictures as we were creating a commotion. Told you it's always interesting to shoot in india.
Love these pictures. Love my jewelry. And love my incredible photographer's talent and drive to not be afraid of all the shit I put her through during our shoots.
