Inside this advertisement-free issue, we introduce you to extraordinary individuals who aren't chasing shortcuts or disillusioned by some notion of fast success. They are putting in the hard work and time, making sacrifices, and setting aside fear to keep pushing forward in their respective fields. In Udaipur, Waswo X. Waswo is bridging nostalgic elements of photography with modern techniques in a studio filled with the most interesting characters.
