This Guy's Beautiful Portraits Will Leave You Speechless

Sometimes, the eyes say it all.

Posted on

Ravi Choudhary, a 30-year-old photojournalist residing in New Delhi, has been clicking breathtaking portraits for ten years now. His work has taken him around India, as well as to other places like Nepal, where he captured some strong emotions in the wake of last year's devastating earthquake.

"I don't really plan out my portraits in advance, he told BuzzFeed India. "If I see someone striking enough to make me stop, a connection is formed between me and the subject."

Here are some of his most beautiful portraits:
