printed on Giclée Hahnemühle Bamboo

Deep in the dense tropical forest of Meghalaya, and shrouded in cloud and rain for much of the year, are some astonishing man-made natural wonders. Known as living root bridges, inventive members of the Khasi tribe have trained them to grow from the roots of ancient rubber trees, native to the northeast region. The root bridges provide a stable alternative to wooden bridges, which decay and get destroyed during the lengthy monsoon seasons.

My mother and grandfather were born around this region and since I was a kid i've been coming up to this remote part of the world. It's helped me a lot in becoming a better photographer and filmmaker and just having access to such natural beauty and such a diverse set of people inspired me to become a documentary filmmaker.
