Good vibes, techno beats and body paint in Tel Aviv

I took my daughter to the Gay Pride Parade in Tel Aviv this afternoon. Good vibes, techno beats and body paint reminded me a bit of ‘Hotel LaChapelle‘. Street parties are always a terrific opportunity for pictures but this time, being responsible for a nine-year-old, I was not so free to shoot. Never the less, […]

Microfinancing loans, or Christian missionaries in disguise?

Is the NGO distributing micro loans to women in Chhatisgarh actually a front to a new Christian mission in disguise? I have just returned from Raipur, Chhatisgarh, shooting a feature about microfinancing for a German consumer magazine. The shoot was very simple and straight forward, but we have found some remarkable facts about the NGO […]

Shiva, Parvati, Bling, Paratha

Lord Shiva and his wife Parvati are probably the most famous couple in India, and although married many thousands of years ago, they still maintain more bling than even Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai :-) Last night I went to Old Delhi for the Ram Barat procession that went through Sadar Bazar and Chandni Chowk. […]

Not all Slumdogs are Millionaires!

So Slumdog Millionaire had won the Oscar and suddenly everyone is looking at India and the story of Dharavi slum comes out to light. For this reason alone maybe it is a good thing that this movie won, but will it do anything to help the children still living there? Dharavi slum had never looked […]

Street Food of Delhi for Bocuse d’Or Winner

A couple of months ago I was commissioned to document a BrandsMission production and had the pleasure of working side to side with Norwegian chef Geir Skeie, who was at the time holder of the title of best chef in Europe. It was a gala evening at the Norwegian embassy in Delhi and chef Gier […]

FotoWala – A new name for the blog

I must admit that I was not seriously convinced by the name Shaadi Galore right form the start. It was the first working title of my upcoming book on Indian weddings but somehow never really stuck to the blog. the new name however, FotoWala, is more about photography and India, ‘wala‘ in Hindi meaning anything […]

Indie, not India

Sometime we get some great images that cannot fit into any category. Those images are often forgotten and never see the light of day. PDN photo magazine had recognized the potential in these images and had started a photo competition called GO INDIE that is completely open for any image that cannot find itself anywhere […]

“a manzgadado what a manzgadado”

I am not so happy to post this but being such an important issue I feel that I have to. Raising awareness and educating people to the copyrights and moral rights of photographers has always been something I put extra attention to. Every photographer loves a good feedback for his work and I am not […]

A photojournalist’s point of view

Like all good young ‘professional’ photographers, I was raised to mock wedding photography and all that it represented and never even thought that I would do it. “Wedding photographer” always seemed to be a bit uncool, to put it lightly. No one thinks twice if you say that you’re a commercial photographer, or a photographer […]
