By day, London-based Joe Pickard is Books Editor at Monocle magazine, where he is responsible for heading up the in-house books team and editing the Monocle Travel Guide series. By night, he is a keen photographer and avid Instagrammer. Both have taken him to various far-flung destinations around the world but his 2017 collaboration with Kamalan was his first taste of India.
The dusky pink of the Tranquebar fort or a Munnar sunrise
The gently bruised jasmine of a welcome garland.
The sugar coated fennel seeds served after a meal.
The exotic twang of the Veena.
The feel of smooth, sun drenched stone slabs on bare feet.
