… it’s five years since I visited India for a memorable journey with colleagues Rob Maccoll and Peter Wallis …one of the aims of which was to document life on a road trip from a – once ubiquitous, now disappearing – iconic Hindustan Motors Ambassador (an Indian version of the British 1950’s Morris Oxford).
We found our Ambassador and real gentleman driver Kishore in Jodhpur and travelled – not without incident – through the states of Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan … and between us amassed a few photographs.
On returning to Australia I managed a quick edit of the total images and published a pic essay on my personal web site and the ‘fotostrada’ site entitled “India in an Ambassador” which you can find at … www.briancasseyphotographer.com/photographs/india/ .. .and … www.fotostrada.com/brian-cassey/india-in-ambassador/BCRaja1/.
However, just the other day I was searching for one of the original pic files and delving into the India archive. I kept noticing images that I had missed during the original edit. So I kept looking …
This is the result – “India Redux 2016” – 34 essentially NEW images that have never seen ‘the light of day’ before … from New Delhi, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Agra, Vrindavan, Pushkar, Jaipur and Varanasi and the roads in-between.
(That’ll learn me to take more care during big edits … !)
The new essay is now live on my site at … https://www.briancasseyphotographer.com/photographs/india-redux-2016/ … and also in ‘Latest Stories’ on the ‘fotostrada’ photojournalist web site at … http://www.fotostrada.com/latest-stories/india—redux-2016/BCIndiaRedux28v/
Below are just three teaser images from the new essay … top and bottom from Jodhpur, middle from Varanasi.
