Sikkim: The Unpublished Photographs

I spent around twelve years photographing in Sikkim and during this time I built up a very large collection of transparencies. Here are some of the photographs which were not published in the Sikkim book. Thanks to latest scanning technology they can be reproduced on the web. I hope to add some more of this work in the next few months.

  1. This is place is is a spiritual paradise! The pictures are very nice!

  2. Dear Sujoy, Thanks for presenting your rare pictures. I am sure many of us have not yet seen the sights of exotic Sikkim, regards- Satish.

  3. I loved the photo of the ear cleaner in Lal Market! ENT specialization was alive and well in India hundreds of years before technology took over!!
