Mini-series – Lookback Kashmir in Monochrome

Having been quite regular with Instagram for some time now, the urge to keep on experimenting with different forms of photography has always been inspiring. As a result, even if am yet to recognize the signature mark or style for myself, experimenting with different types, genres, variations has helped me understand various aspects of photography.

The latest interest is in running mini-series of photographs with similar themes. Frequent travelling helps. This post is about the mini-series titled ‘Lookback Kashmir in Monochrome’ that I ran in Instagram over the span of two weeks starting from May 10th.

We visited Kashmir back in 2011, just after graduation. Although Kashmir, the Switzerland of India, is as colourful as anything can be, this mini-series is an attempt to showcase that landscape can be equally enticing in monochrome (read, black and white). I plan to run a mini-series with colour photos from Kashmir (or maybe faces / portraits) sometime in near future, but for now, these monochromes have been revelating.
