Overland Expo’s 2017 WEST Best Shot Photo Contest saw nearly 800 inspiring entries featuring everything from small displacement motorcycles to massive Unimogs roaming every imaginable terrain. The top eight finalists featured landscapes, close-ups with wildlife, and stunning starscapes but in the end, the human factor won the vote. Candida Louis’ powerful photo speaks to finding commonality between contrasting cultures and lives.
Behind the Veil. . . – Candida Louis
While riding through the remote villages of India very close to the Pakistan border I came across this school in the Gurez Valley where the girls were so excited to see a lady riding the bike. That they ran out of their class and wanted me to take them on short rides. So being there I know that behind their veil’s are happy faces full of excitement and a longing to go out there and explore the world.
Candida has confirmed she will be using her Grand Prize of an Overland Experience Package + Guest to attend our EAST show in Asheville, NC September 29th – Oct 1st, 2017.
Congratulations Candida, we’ll see you there!
