Lost in Space

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Anindya Paul

Ladakh, an out-of-the-world landscape with a rugged terrain and a cold desert, offers a well-preserved ancient culture and immense natural wealth that remained shrouded in mystery for many years. "If ever a human needed reminding of his insignificance in the larger context of things, Ladakh is the place for it. The sheer vastness around you can shrink your sense of self to nothing." I have tried to imbibe that feeling through this photograph.

Location: Nubra Valley, Ladakh, India
