A long series of journeys through the Indian subcontinent bring about a face to face encounter with a decidedly multi-facetted culture where the borderline between objectivity and allusion often become hazy. Within this framework, the real journey engenders a voyage inside the image and leads to a continuous assessment of the relationships between the constructed landscape and photography. This view of contemporary India travels through three chapters: karma (action), samsara (cycle) and moksa (liberation) and suggests the three life concepts of Hinduism as a means of reading tangible space.

Abstract

A long series of journeys through the Indian subcontinent bring about a face to face encounter with a decidedly multi-facetted culture where the borderline between objectivity and allusion often become hazy. Within this framework, the real journey engenders a voyage inside the image and leads to a continuous assessment of the relationships between the constructed landscape and photography. This view of contemporary India travels through three chapters: karma (action), samsara (cycle) and moksa (liberation) and suggests the three life concepts of Hinduism as a means of reading tangible space.
