Travelling in India
This album is a photographic gesture. It is in the spirit of those intrepid British travel writers like Lady Stanhope whoused words and a sketchbook to record their impressions. I dont think you can ever capture or explain India, but during my three weeks exploring a fraction of this multifarious, miraculous country I discovered a world as vivid and refined, as complicated and intensely coloured as an eighteenth-century Mughal miniature. Here was the shifting animation of life itself, the celebration of humanity and the longing of the soul for the divine in every small act of kindness. Every day is a festival, every day is a death.
