Taj Mahal, it is the most famous historic site in India. It is a memorial photo with all the family in front of the Taj Mahal. Actually here is the beach at the southern end of India, far from the Taj Mahal. This family didn't go to the Taj Mahal practically, but I believe this picture is a wonderful memory they will never forget.

Tetsuo Kurita from Nagoya, Aichi Japan, born in 1971, started his life in typical fashion. Obtaining MBA and on to a 17 year career as a chief executive for a Japanese company in China. However, Tetsuo Kurita was driven by his passions of photography and cultural anthropology. Kurita left his business career and became a professional photographer capturing beautiful and poignant images of minority tribes and their traditions which are quickly disappearing in today’s modern world.
