Arvind Patwal belongs to Uttarakhand and is currently living in Delhi to pursue his graduation from Delhi University. A master at street photography, he currently works as a freelance photographer.
Arvind loves to research different places before starting his journey. He reminisces his first trip to Barsana at the time of the Holi festival. Excited to capture amazing colourful photography, he ultimately won.
A group traveller by heart, he does like to travel solo depending on the situation. Though not a full-time traveller, travelling has always been a passion for him, a custom he wishes to follow.
A must visit for all the travel lovers out there, Arvind shares his favourite destinations with us. Anandpur Sahib during ‘Holla Mohalla’, Barsana during ‘Holi’, Varanasi during ‘Dev Dipawali’, streets of Kolkata, Deserts of Jaisalmer and Varanasi to be his favourite.
A planned traveller, his 5 must-haves for travelling include power bank, torch, blanket, dry fruits and a swiss knife. A lover of photography, the most interesting part for the young traveller is nonetheless, clicking pictures.
Covering states such as Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and cities like Kolkata, one life lesson he has learnt through travelling is to take care of oneself and never get involved in drug addiction.
An interesting fragment from the street photographer’s life involves around going to Anandpur Sahib for ‘Holla Mohalla’ with a few friends. He spent 4 nights in a car and enjoyed a lot while clicking pictures on the ground, says Arvind Patwal.
