Couldn't be any happier with this layout from the new Fah Thai on work I shot on the Rabari of Rajasthan. Each year at the time of the Kartik Purnima full moon, Rabari and up to 20,000 camels descend on the sand dunes surrounding Pushkar to take part in the world’s largest camel fair. The Rabari, a tribal group found in India's Rajasthan State, historically were guardians of the camel. An emblem of Rajasthan, the camel symbolizes love in folklore, and ownership once signaled status and wealth. The camel was used in warfare by the Maharajahs and played an important role in desert communication, transportation and trade. The Rabari way of life is becoming increasingly difficult as they are losing access to grazing lands which they used for centuries on seasonal migrations. Over the past decade the one humped camel has has experienced a decline in its population, estimated to be about 50%.

Not the most exciting picture but an important story. Shot a hotel in Bangkok a few days ago for National Post as part of an ongoing story that the Post's Stewart Bell has been working on about human smuggling from Sri Lanka to Canada. No big surprise that Bangkok was used as a staging point by the smuggling rings. Here's a link to the series we worked on a couple years back: http://news.nationalpost.com/tag/on-the-smugglers-trail/
