Kashmir by Sindhur Reddy

Sindhur Reddy’s photo series ‘Kashmir’ is a project that was born of spontaneity. Kashmir is in the northwestern region of South Asia. Until the mid-19th century, the term Kashmir geographically denoted only the valley between the Great Himalayas and the Pir Panjal mountain range. Today, it denotes a larger area that includes the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir (which consists of Jammu, the Kashmir Valley, and Ladakh), the Pakistan-administered territories of Azad Kashmir and Gilgit–Baltistan, and the Chinese-administered regions of Aksai Chin and the Trans-Karakoram Tract.

I wouldn’t call this as a project because it was a spontaneous thing, it was my trip to Kashmir with my friend during the winters. As we were traveling to Kashmir – the weather, people, landscapes, mystical rains had set a mood. I have not planned any of my shots, but it perfectly captured the mood that I was experiencing and that moment in time while. I wanted to show the same to people through images that I captured.

For Kashmir, I used a Canon 5d Mark 3 with 16-35mm, 100mm and 50mm lenses. The only advice I can give to aspiring photographer so artist is to observe things, forms, behavior, feel the instinct and capture space and time.
