Trucking in the Himalayas

My book ‘Horn Please – Trucking in India’ is almost finished and we are scheduled to go to print in a couple of weeks. It’s been a year of extensive work and it was funny to see that some of the images that we all like the most were captured only in the last month or so.  The layout design by Yogesh Gajwani looks amazing. Some of the images are spread over a whole double page and it is so lovely to see.

wait for the book in January. In the mean time, here are some new images. I hope you like them.
