Photographer's Note

What makes Rajasthan such a compelling travel destination is its sense of authenticity. Against the backdrop of dusty land and sun-soaked skies, Rajasthan is filled with opulent colours. The people of Rajasthan show a distinct preference for bright colorful traditional dresses.

From the simple village folk or tribal belle to the royalty, the preferred colours are bright red, dazzling yellow, lively green or brilliant orange, highlighted by a lavish use of sparkling gold, silver 'zari' or 'gota' and heavy silver anklets. Their distinct preference for bright bold colours have added so much life to the barren, colourless landscape and the monotonous.

She is a street musician's daughter, a tribal girl from a remote semi desert village I met in Jaisalmer Fort, Jaisalmer one of the oldest desert town in Rajasthan state.

A joyful certainly not camera shy and her infectious smile hopefully will brighten up any day!

Happy viewing
