Photo Feature / Fort Kochi – Ratheesh Sundaram

Fort Kochi is one of the cities which I always wanted to visit as it is like a Pandora’s Box unveiling surprises and unexpected joy. A favorite haunt of Kochi, the beach at Fort Kochi is a tranquil experience at any time of the day. Meeting the locals, migrants and foreigners gives an intriguing mix to Photography.


I did numerous candid and street photography in the lanes of Fort Kochi.The people are Cosmopolitan, with lots of migrants welcomed with a good temperament. The European Heritage Buildings are a mark of exceptional architecture and history and a fascination for hundreds of visitors every day.


This  city born in storm, nurtured in rivalry and established as battling ground for European empires is a must visit for a Photographer or for any person interested in experiencing blend of cultures. These are some random shots from my wandering archives
