Sankar Sridhar

Sridhar developed a head for heights as a teenager in Calcutta while climbing stairs, first to peddle pagers and then trousers. The exercise – skipping lunch, mounting steps, and dashing down to outrun irate housewives – stood him in good stead when he finally swapped concrete staircases for the icy Himalayas. A photographer and travel writer, Sridhar has today traveled across wide swaths of the country to document its landscapes and people.  His enduring personal project has been to document the lives of pastoralists, especially the people who call the high Himalayas their home.
