“Beginnings” – Mythos of the Origins of the World

Shot for Suitcase Mag, on location over two busy days in Jaipur, India with an international team of artists – “Beginnings” details the mythos of the origins of the world. Capturing sunrises and sunsets, elephants, ancient forts and royal palaces, this was a labor of love for everyone involved.


“Before this time began, there was no earth and no space between. A vast dark ocean washed upon the shores of nothingness and kissed the edges of the night.”
