Migrant Worker, Kolkata.. The lane was closed off from the street, but the gate was slightly ajar. It is a mens quarters for migrant workers who come to Kolkata from other Indian states.

Fishing boat.Fishing boats are dropping nets in An Hai, Tuy An, Phu Yen, Vietnam. The nets are dropping in an oval-like circle, after which the fishermen on the boat will use a circular pulley to support and pull the net by hand. The great thing is, every time the grid is pulled up, it will transform into different shapes. Oval, heart-shaped, sometimes like the train of wedding dress, leaf-shaped and a torch.
Hamar Children. A group of children in a Hamar village in the Omo Valley in Southern Ethiopia.
Hk Bathers. The photo was taken on 120 film on a trip to Hong Kong late last year. It was taken in central Mong Kok amidst the ongoing democracy protests, the contextual juxtaposition between conflict and leisure makes for an interesting dynamic. The image reminds me of the work of Martin Parr, since taking it my direction has shifted to creating humorous or surrealist street photography.
Chollima Steelworks, North Korea (DPRK). Chollima Steelworks Complex remains one of North Korea's most important industrial facilities. North Koreans are enormously proud of this place as it represents the self reliance of the country. The number 200 in the image refers to the Governments productivity drive campaign, which involves all workers in factories to work continuously for 200 days. (Access to foreigners is rarely granted).

Colours of Chaos. Nothing can prepare you for the absolute chaos that is Phoolon Wali Holi inside the famous Banke Bihari Temple. Thousands line up for hours in the early morning heat, waiting for a single door to open into the temple, where for 20-minutes, flowers are thrown over the surging crowd. This handheld long exposure was something I'd hope to capture and was lucky to get the opportunity.
United as One. The sun began to set over the imposing temple of Nandgaon, where thousands of people had amassed to witness the spectacle of Lathmar Holi. Photographers and participants surrounded the large circle of seated men as buckets of colour were thrown over the congregation. Through the chaos, I could see this particular man shrouded in a cloud of colour, so I took aim and captured this shot.

A rainy evening at a mountain temple. I found this temple by accident. I sheltered from the rain under the eaves as night began to fall. While I waited a line of monks emerged from a building, each holding an umbrella. They ascended the stairs and took up position by a large decorated drum. Each monk took a turn drumming their own individual rhythm. The noise reverberated over the valley.
Proud. I was lucky enough to be present in Papua New Guinea during their independence celebrations last year. This young man was proudly displaying their flag with his friends at Ella Beach, along with thousands of others.

Bustling. A busy night market in Old town, Marrakech. In this photo I wanted to show the interaction in the market. I do this by using a long exposure. In this shot you can see those who are still and those who are moving, it creates a beautiful dynamic of the scene.

Drying fish.Long Hai fish market, Ba Ria - Vung Tau, Vietnam is the place to buy and sell seafood, especially dried scad, with the scientific name of decapterus. Thousands of fry trays are dried on rooftops and yards by hundreds of workers. The weather here is very sunny with high temperatures and the workers work with great intensity. I came to Long Hai on a photo trip and was really overwhelmed by the scale

Siblings. A young Kyrgyz girl gives her young brother a piggyback ride in the village of Suleyman, a settlement in Afghanistan's Wakhan Corridor. The narrow stretch of land, bound by the Hindukush, Pamir, and Karakoram ranges, is one of the world's most remote corners. Its inhabitants, the nomadic Kyrgyz people, live without running water or power migrating between seasonal settlements twice a year.
Farmer and his Buffalo. Old China is rapidly fading into history. But there are still places where traditional village life can be seen. In the banyan tree forest of Yangjiaxi a farmer and his buffalo pass through the mists of early morning.

Wylie sunbathers. If there is one good thing that has come from Covid-19 is that people now spread out on the beach, or in this case, Wylie Pool. Don't you hate it when someone comes and sits right beside you?
