Hi! I'm Minu. I am a traveler and photographer from India. I moved to Germany in 2006 and have lived in 8 towns and cities since: Leipzig, Alajuela, Munich, Hyderabad, Dubai, San Francisco, Berlin and my current home, Bangalore.
My love for photography began as a means to document my travels and has progressively become the voice of the storyteller in me. Fueled by adventure, curiosity and non-conformism, I am known to forever wander with a camera in hand, oftentimes solo. My travel photography explores the disparate cultures that constitute the living world, while tying it all together with the lowest common denominator- the human condition. Memory and nostalgia are common themes in my work. Likewise, my architectural work seeks to understand the complexities of a multilayered physical world, yet presents linearity and simplification.
Also as the founder of RoadsWellTraveled, a boutique tourism and sustainability consulting practice, my team and I help make tourism and businesses more impactful, innovative and sustainable.
I believe in the healing powers of mountains, conversation and photography; in losing myself in unfamiliar places, and enjoying, not fearing missing out.
I speak English, Hindi, German, enough Kannada and Spanish to navigate through Bangalore's City Market or converse with Panama's Embera tribe.
I am available for assignments across India and the globe.
