Earlier this year my talented friend Sarah Martin the brains behind Marho gave me the amazing opportunity to take her collection to India with me to conceptualise and photograph her garments on location during my travels. Excited by the creative opportunity I found the most perfect location on the first city that I visited on my voyage, Udaipur.
Located by Lake Pichola surrounded by the Aravalli Hills of Rajasthan, the city has an abundance of visual spectacles of palaces temples and town houses, and characteristically colourful curved pathways filled with hotels and restaurants as well as busy bazaars busting with handmade crafts, fabrics and jewels.
Despite the hustle and bustle of the streets of the old city, there is a sense of calm and peacefulness as a result of the picturesque surrounding lake. A visit to a rooftop hotel or restaurant (which are a plenty) is paramount to experience the magnificence and magic of Udaipur.
