Sounds of the Soil

Sounds of the Soil is a photographic journey through the beautiful and enigmatic Rajasthan region of India. It's a region filled with harsh climate and terrain, but is contrasted with the warm, fun loving spirit of it's inhabitants. On my journey I met so many interesting individuals, but the subjects I was most intrigued by were the ones working this unforgiving land, and the entertainers roaming the dessert with their songs of love, separation, heroism and revelry.
