People of Srinagar, Kashmir, India


World / India / Jammu and Kashmir

       







The People of Kashmir are warm and engaging. There is a smile for visitors everywhere you go. You may be curious to find that, unlike other destinations, for the Kashmiri page, all the people I photographed are male. That's because while the Kashmiri men are eager to be photographed while the women are often camera shy. I am too respectful of their privacy to intrude on any of them unless they grant me permission to shoot.

We live on the houseboat where we are cut off from the rest of Srinagar. So, we're pleased that the supermarket came to us.
