The Kutchi Traditions

Kutch, the largest district in India, literally means a dry region. Further study in etymology also suggests that it means a tortoise in Sanskrit. The land is a muse to many artists and photographers who have worked deeply on the theme of Kutch and on the White Desert, the only one of its kind in world. The Kutchi accessories exaggerate the mystical nature of the land, and imparts its people an enchanting demeanour. Album ‘The Traditions of Kutch’ is dedicated to the artistic value of these people and how they have still maintained the traditional lifestyle that has now become a part of their lifestyle.

The album has been shot by photographer Arvind Nathani, who is a local from Kutch and has won many accolades, including the India International Photography Award in 2014 for his picturesque clicks. Arvind has been engaged in photography since more than 20 years now, and he works in the Agriculture Department of Gujarat. He started photographing as a hobby but soon realised his niche in travel photography and took it seriously after then.
