Explore the subcontinent through the images of India’s Foreign Photographer of the Year, Fredric Roberts
In Humanitas II: The People of Gujarat, Roberts explores a region that’s off the usual agenda for most tourists. Nestled in the northwestern corner of India with a coastline along the Arabian Sea, Gujarat is an economic driver for the country. Ancient port cities, a border with Pakistan and the neighboring states of Rajasthan, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh make Gujarat a cultural crossroads. Temples dedicated to a broad range of religions abound and folk art is everywhere. Here, Roberts’ DSLRs have found a fertile environment. Away from the developed cities, the region’s villages still show their roots to hundreds of years of princely state rule, and in the protected national parks and forests, Gujarat is the natural habitat of the rare Asiatic lion.
