No matter how far and wide I travel, one thing in common across the miles is basic human nature. As a portrait photographer, I have had the great fortune to meet people from all walks of life and the more I indulge, the more I realize, we are all the same.

How different is this shy little kid, curious to interact yet hesitant to get out of his cocoon compared to those I have met in lost corners of Tajikistan or highlands of Himalaya or in the dusty lanes on streets of India. We are all the same - built, crafted and nurtured by mother earth to be one. Different languages, various religions, diverse cultures and what not, yet all the same at the root of it all.

‘Utofauti’ in Swahili translates to ‘Diversity’
