India has always had a special place in my heart. I love the spirit, the orderly chaos, the warmth of its people and as a visual artist appreciate the theatre and cast of characters. I am inspired by Raghu Rai’s work as a photographer. He says “A photograph has picked up a fact of life, and that fact will live forever.” It immortalizes the moment. I agree and strive to do this with my work. I processed this work in black and white to add to this sense of immortality and capture the emotion and spirit in a more dramatic fashion. It isolates and adds to the intimacy as well.
