Pondicherry encore…

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

 

Following yesterday’s entry with the tearsheet from the Monocle assignment, I thought I’d show some images that I was pleased with but didn’t make the final edit.

Funnily enough, I’d just shot and written another piece about French involvement in India… hundreds of miles away – a strange co├»ncidence. More on that when it’s published later in the year…

Tearsheet – Monocle

Monday, April 29th, 2013

Here’s a spread from this month’s Monocle Magazine of a story I shot for them a few weeks ago in Pondicherry, the former French territory in southern India. I’ll post a couple of my favourite images from the set in a day or two.
