An unforgettable photographic journey to a remote area of the Indian continent, little known by western tourism. An India that for those who know the spice continent will be very familiar but at the same time extremely different due to the great variety of peoples and traditions that can be encountered. In Ahmedabad, the capital of the region, thanks to some local contacts, I was able to visit the schools and attend classes, discover the hidden architecture of ancient and fascinating stepped wells, and then savor the chaos of the Indian slums. Gujarat with a thousand faces has astounded us with the maritime cities and the incredible holy cities, places where the pyres for the cremation of the dead burn in the middle of the shores of the Arabian Sea in a silent and surreal ritual. Our journey has led us to discover an exciting succession of unexpected encounters, abandoned villages and nomad caravans living in the desert area called Kutch, the northernmost area of the country, arid, inhospitable, Martian, inhabited by different tribes like Rabari and Jat with clear traits of the highlands. The wrinkles on their faces are as deep as the borders that divide India and Pakistan here a few kilometers away.
