3 Months Through the Indian Subcontinent: A Visual Story

Traveling through the Indian subcontinent for 3 months is my travel dream. Photographer Jelle Van De Weghe just lived it earlier this year.

He wandered through Sri Lanka, India, and Nepal, covering 10,000km by foot, bicycle, motorbike, car, bus, train, boat, elephant, and of course camel.

His goal was to document the parallel between wildlife and people, and explore the many contrasts we see in the world.

With the recent earthquake in Nepal, these images from that region become even more powerful.
