About the Artist

"I come from a line of artists, and somehow, India made me one." - Mancie Rathod

Mancie wasn't able to come to India until her adult life, but yearned to go so deeply. She lived India through her dads adventures, through music and beautiful memories shared by her family. The first time she stepped into India, she felt at home, like her soul finally found something she was missing for a while. Very naturally, she developed transient yet, sweet relationships with the people that she encountered. She recieved beautiful stories of these people, whether that being from their smile, their eyes, their words, and sometimes as simple as silent passing moments shared between them. Her lens tells those stories. They are just moments in time.
