Annapurna Mellor is a travel photographer and writer who calls the road her home. In the past two years, she's ridden the Trans-Mongolian railway, spent Christmas Day in the Egyptian desert, trekked through the Himalayan peaks she was named after, and worked as a volunteer journalist in a Tibetan corner of India. Her photographs have appeared in Lonely Planet Guide Books, The Guardian, National Geographic Traveller and many more. She can usually be found tramping through Asia with a camera in one hand and a pen in the other, always looking for an intriguing face to capture, or a forgotten corner of a city to discover. She will soon be returning to India for a long trip through the subcontinent and the Himalayan region.
