Axel has visited India many times over the last twenty years and is fascinated by the unique connection between nature and culture, which is so characteristic of this country. From the forests of Ranthambore to the rocky landscapes of Karnataka and the dunes of the Thar Desert, Axel portrays the magic of this diverse country and its unique wildlife, including Bengal tigers, the elusive Sloth bear and the Demoiselle cranes which congregate each winter around the village of Khichan in Rajasthan. He also visits temples and palaces that recall the splendour of India’s past and documents the Kumbh Mela, the largest religious festival in the world, when millions of pilgrims bathe in the holy waters of the Ganges.

To find out more about Axel’s book, view it on Amazon. If you have any questions about Axel’s photography or wish to license any of his images, please send an email  or call on +44 (0)117 911 4675.
