Rajasthan – In Black & White (18 Photos)

The patterns of the Thar desert.

RAJASTHAN, known for its colours, can’t be imagined in ‘black & white’. However, I believe images in black & white exude more character. Well, the photographs that you are going to see here were not really clicked with black & white theme in mind. I usually look for colours when I snap a place. And when it’s Rajasthan, it’s hard to ignore colours. But, when I thought about taking away the hues of these images, I wanted to highlight the feelings behind them – the stillness, the unfading beauty and the uniqueness of culture.

I hope you enjoy Rajasthan without hues.
