Travel Portraits in South India by instax mini 90 (from “TRANSIT magazine”)
he South of India is a beautiful and brilliant place. It was too easy to find its vividness, not only in its landscape, but also in the clothes the locals wore and their expressions. I attempted to capture this with Instax photo. Everyday I saw happy faces and wondered about their dreams. Whilst travelling through Kerala, Tamil and Nadul, I took photos of people and asked them some questions.
