India: A Photo Essay by Josh Dookhie.

India by Josh Dookhie Photography

What I love most about Dookhie's photography is his incredible ability to turn the everyday into beautiful pieces of art. A photographer's greatest challenge is connecting emotionally with their subject in a very short span of time, Dookhie is able to that by not only observing with a camera, but actively participating in the world around him. 

In these photos from India he captures vibrant street scenes, sensitive, evocative portraits, and small but significant candid moments that show life in India in a dynamic and authentic way.

The greatest strength of this essay comes from the overwhelming sense of movement and action that permeates all of Dookhie's work. (Website // Instagram // Facebook )

In his words...

Sometimes I think that the most basic and mundane things within our human existence can reflect the most beauty when you take a second look. People mulling around, going about their day, no facades or pretence, just life. and its beautiful.

India has allowed me to glimps a little deeper into the lives of the strangers around me as life, for the most part, is lived out so publicly. There is seldom allowance to hide in privacy. From washing clothes, or ones own body in the river, to joyfully or mournfully praying, and even life and death. All are experienced openly, without apology or shame. In so doing, I found so much courage and strength in each face that passed by. I’ll Say it again, because i can’t say it enough, India, and its people, are truly beautiful!
