Ben says this about his project:

As a photographer, I’m working on documenting the abroaders interaction with India and its environment and people.  Before my departure I realized that coming to India would be a visual fest of color and light, so one of my goals was to look beyond its initial aesthetic, to look for a deeper meaning of what our journey meant to us.

I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to focus on autowalla drivers in Udaipur, the answer to my search for a deeper meaning for this journey.  They are a people wide with livelihoods and full of stories about who they are and where they come from.
