I was warned by so many people that Kachchh, the region of India I have been placed in by AIF, would be boring. As it turns out they couldn’t be more wrong. Around every corner, Kachchh seems to have a new adventure in store. Every minute seems to be filled with amazing landscapes and good company. In my fleeting moments I turn to sketching to document the things I see and to understand them in new ways. Outside of the abundant lessons my fellowship has taught me, it has given me confidence and encouraged me to develop all of my skills – art included. These sketches are the first of many, I hope, archiving images of a place that has become special to me.
