Traveling with the Bangalore Wanderlusters: Reflections on a Semester in India by Maya Grant

Maya Grant, Patient Vendor, digital print, 2016

In the fall of 2016, Maya Grant travelled to India on a study abroad scholarship from the GVSU Padnos International Center. A sociology major and women and gender studies minor, Grant was led to India by a need to escape and explore. They studied at Christ University in Bengaluru, volunteered at a local non-profit and captured their experiences and interactions through photography.

On the weekends, Grant joined a group of expats called the Bangalore Wanderlusters, and traveled throughout Karnataka and its neighboring states. This exhibition includes over 25 photographs documenting their experiences studying abroad, and exploring the landscape and people of India.
