Rainer Hosch: Faces Of Udaipur

Rainer Hosch is an Austrian commercial photographer,and currently lives in Chelsea (the NYC one). His photographs appeared in magazines like i-D, Wired, Esquire, GQ and The New York Times, and he has worked on advertising for Nike, Microsoft and Hewlett Packard, among others.

He recently returned to NYC after traveling in Thailand and India, photographing an advertising campaign for an international outdoor furniture maker. I thought I'd feature some of his personal work such as Faces of Udaipur, a gallery of the photo shoot's cast, in order to highlight the work of a commercial photographer doing travel/location photography, and how it differs from documentary travel photography.  It seems Rainer has one of these furniture assignments in India, and it's locations were at the fabulous Lake Palace Hotel, and also in Deogarh.
