Bylakuppe, India, 2001

The part of photography that I love is being able to wander and explore the world that we live in, and to discover what’s different, and what’s the same about different people in different parts of the world. I was wandering through this Tibetan monastery in South India, came across these young novice monks who after a full day of studying, intense discipline and doing their Buddhist practice, were letting off some steam. They got their computer games, one had a toy pistol and they were just doing what kids do all over the world. I have an endless fascination with children and how they are different, how they dress differently and how they act differently, but fundamentally, they’re all the same regardless of what part of the world they come from.
