Part I of Arjun Menon’s “India : #ChangeThePerception” time-lapse project.

Watch on YouTube

I want to change the conventional perception of what “India” is, beyond the bullock carts and snake charmers!

I funded my idea by shooting weddings, my project involved months of travel to some stunning natural and architectural wonders in India. In the past 4 months, I have shot over 2 million images and I have compiled some of them here for Part 1 of my project.

The locations vary from Spiti Valley in the Himalayas to Beaches of Andaman Islands, Tawang (Arunachal Pradesh) from north eastern India to Taj Mahal in Agra etc. There is just so much more to see! (Hint : Part II )

I have had a wholesome learning experience through this project and had an opportunity to meet so many new people who have inspired me in different ways. I would encourage all of you to just pack your bags and travel, it is just the initial bump of uncertainty which comes in our way to exploring, once we are past that, there is no looking back!

Stay tuned for “Part II” of my project, I promise it will be a step up!
