Yamuna River

PrizeHonorable Mention
Entry Description

Life on the Rivers of India is ever constant. Vrindavan, India is particularly holy, the birthplace of Krishna as it is written. Shrines a bound, seekers gather, as do fairly vicious monkeys. However all of that ceased in this moment -- a lone boat “wallah” making his way across the river is pastoral and timeless, and captures the pure beauty and silence that is the ancient Yamuna River.

About Photographer

I have been taking photographs since I was 7 years old when I took my first self-portrait as a Brownie with a Brownie camera given to me by my father. That was the first of many he would give me including his beloved Leica M3 that I still own. It ignited my passion that led to my career as an award-winning filmmaker. But photography has always been the portal to my soul. It is a meditation – my mind gets still, I lose sense of time and something amazing happens in my capturing a moment – then I get to share it. In the past 2 years I’ve donated 3 landscapes to silent auctions in LA and NYC. All 3 have sold.
