Sebastian Cortés: Backwaters India

You'll have to navigate Sebastian Cortés's website a little bit to land on his Travel page which groups his wonderful work in photo essay form.

There are some 12 of those...Backwater Kerala (from which the above photograph is shown), Forever Rajasthan, Chic In Milan, Sidhpur in Gujarat (with magnificent old mansions...probably called havelis as they do in Rajasthan), Venice, Varanasi, Cinque Terre, the Colosseum in Rome, Fort Kochi, Portofino, South Beach (Miami) and the Maldives.

If you haven't guessed it by now, yes...Sebastian Cortés works in both Italy and India. He was born in New York, and took up photography while at New York University film school.  In 1985, he moved to Milan and started photographing fashion and lifestyle photography assignments for international magazines and commercial clients, while also concentrating on portraits and fine-art work. In 2004 Sebastian moved together with his family to India, where he continues to work and produce various book projects.

Here's also his work of Pondicherry's interiors.
