Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Adventures in Travel Photography: Exploring Approaches to People of India and Tibet by April Fonti is a beautiful collection of travel photographs which are the result of the author's chance encounters and living with different people. The pictures speak a story of their own and they strike a chord in the minds of readers with their raw beauty, starkness and colors. The words complement the pictures beautifully, helping readers connect with the images in a better way. The spiritual undertones that run through the pictures and the author's words give a unique dimension to the book.

Every page has its own story, originality, mystery and candidness. Each image has its own story to tell readers and it's quite interesting to dig below the surface of the pictures and unearth different stories. The pictures are bright and lovely and they capture the culture of the places where one can see a fine blend of the material and spiritual world. It's a book that any seasoned traveler will enjoy. Flipping through the pages, the essence of each place is tangible not only through the images, but also through the author's words.

The book is engaging and vibrant. The deserts, the alleyways, ashrams and monasteries all have an unmistakable tone of spirituality which makes the book more appealing. It's well executed, and the images and words take readers on a meaningful journey into the interiors of India and Tibet and highlight the lives of the people in those regions.
