Maynard Switzer: Rann of Kutch

©Maynard Switzer-All Rights Reserved

This is the second time that Maynard Switzer's work is featured on The Travel Photographer blog, and there are good reasons for that; his color aesthetic and his recent gallery of lovely photographs made in the Rann of Kutch and Gujarat. I find Rajastani women to be some of the most attractive in the world, always an incentive to post their images.

Maynard received his early training at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California and apprenticed for Richard Avedon in New York City. He then went on to open his own studio specializing in beauty and fashion photography, working for a very diverse group of advertising, design and editorial clients. He then broadened his creative horizons to pursue travel, portrait and landscape photography.

Maynard's travel portfolio includes galleries of Bolivia, Burma, Cambodia, China, Cuba, India, North America, Vietnam and Ladakh. The previous post on his work is here.

Note: The Rann of Kutch tribal area is possibly one of the destinations for an early 2010 Spring The Travel Photographer photo~expedition. I'd like to include an interesting festival in Rajasthan as well, so I'm working out the logistics in order to link both destinations.
