During her various trips to India — once to scatter her grandmother’s ashes — British photojournalist Emily Garthwaite documented the people and places she met and encountered along the way. Titled A Portrait of India, her series is a raw look at this astonishing country full of contrasts. With powerful compositions, bold colours and dramatic lighting, her portraits reveal her raw talent to connect with her subjects. See more of her work here, and follow her on Instagram.
