My visit to Ladakh was fueled by my fascination towards mountains which started when I used to indulgently paint them, growing up. The union territory is certainly a photographer’s paradise with such a distinctive culture […]


-by Pravin Tamang Over 5 million travellers combined with pilgrims from around the world visit the famed ghats of Varanasi. I frequent these ghats just as anyone, most times aimlessly.

My experience with Leica Q

-by Lopamudra Talukdar The full frame rangefinder style Leica Q is a unique camera. It feels lovely in my hands, is small, lightweight and very well-built.

Here’s what […]

The Evolution of Mobility

-by Ulka Chauhan Camera: Leica M10-R I am a travel/portrait/street photographer from Mumbai. My love for photography began in the early 80s when my dad gifted me a red film camera. I was down with chicken pox and was ironically in home-quarantine, but I enthusiastically photographed everything in sight. I had a turning point in my […]
