Vipurva Parikh, a Mumbai based photographer, had a one month backpacking trip planned across the exotic North East and Bhutan with his girlfriend. But destiny had other plans. She couldn’t join him due to her urgent commitments to her office.
Vipurva went ahead with his trip along with three things: 2 close friends and a plan.
On his journey through West Bengal, Sikkim, Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland and Bhutan, he took pictures of locals and fellow tourists holding a chalkboard, with the lyrics of Ryan Adams’ song “Wish You Were Here.”, which according to Parikh holds a special place in their long distance relationship.
His girlfriend was obviously floored. Are you?
