Past and Future by Harsh Pareek in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India

Jaipur, among other things, is an old city; and despite the fact that numerous malls and showrooms are popping up everywhere, proof of it can be found in just about every corner, especially in the “old city”. It was one of the first architecturally designed city in India, home to the kings and royalty. It is home to some of the most stunning palaces and forts. And what I love doing is to capture them in all there glory.

Jaipur is a blend of old and new, of past and the future.
