Sej Saraiya is an Indian photographer. After graduating from the University of Southern California, she started to travel to the unexplored interiors of the culturally rich Asia and South America in an attempt to transcend language and cultural barriers and explore consciousness. Although she had been seeing the world through a lens since she was ten years old, it was only then that her camera became an extension of herself. She now divides her time between India and California. Her photographs have been purchased by collectors in Los Angeles, New York, Texas, Belgium, and India.
En Route to Somewhere is a photography and culture related website to showcase the beauty of various cultures around the world and bridge the existing gap between civilizations through photographs.Through this page, she aims to to spread an awareness about advaita- the eternal oneness between all living beings and the planet. She uses this space to share photographs, short stories, and beautiful reads encountered along the way. If you’re interested in buying a print, you can buy them here or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. All prints are on archival paper.
