Neil Herbert, Exhibition, India, Photographer, Travel, Portraits

Neil Herbert’s explorations of India, China, and other far-reaching corners of Asia have fostered a photographic style that is simultaneously exotic and intimate. His very personal portraits of normal people against the vibrant backdrops of their everyday lives are curious, thoughtful, and observant, without being invasive. In his most recent collections, India: Portrait of a Country, and This is China, Herbert challenges the concept of day-to-day banality by bearing witness to the beauty and diversity that can be found in ordinary situations.

His quirky, colourful, and energetic images demonstrate an appreciation and fascination for an everyday way of life that is strange, beautiful, and beyond the mundane.
