21 Stills

21 Expressions of Pararth Shah

On my 21st birthday, my sister gifted me a framed version of this collage. The fact that she made this herself using Photoshop, and spent hours with my aunt to select the 21 stills that cover the widest range of expressions, that was a big gift in itself!

Here is the list of places where each photo is taken:
