The troops being dropped off for a emergency reaction drill the background of the Himalayas. This was another of those moments I had to pinch myself to realise I was actually photographing this! My mission was to show a contemporary side to the Indian Armed Forces with the help of the @indianarmy.adgpi
The inspiration behind this project was one person, my dad.
He was a Pilot for the #IndianArmy Aviation, like most kids that age I used to feel that dad was the coolest. I mean imagine flying a heavy metal machine, in some of the most harshest environments on earth (above the Himalayas to Rainforests and deserts), performing combat training and helping out paratroopers jump of his helicopter and calling it a days work. Growing up, "G.I Joe" used to be my favourite cartoon show but I used to think my dad does all these things everyday without anyone even making it a big deal.
We lost him to a helicopter crash 16 years ago. Somewhere deep inside I wanted to highlight what the life in the army is for some of these men and women in a contemporary way. That was the inception of project: The Extraordinary. The Indian Army is known to be one of the most versatile armed forces across the globe. The project aims to explore and highlight these extraordinary men, women and machines that make this organisation so diverse, multicultura😈✌
