Holi Festival in Mathura/Vrindavan

The tradition of playing colours on Holi draws its roots from a legend of Radha and Krishna. It is said that young Krishna was jealous of Radha’s fair complexion since he himself was very dark. He narrated his woe to mother Yashoda, who teasingly asked him to colour Radha’s face in which ever colour he wanted. In a mischievous mood, Krishna applied colour on Radha’s face. The tradition of applying colour on one’s beloved is being religiously followed till date. (source: holifestival.org)

Detroit – Wandering In Place

Detroit is the second location in a series of investigations into ideas of place as a defining force in our society.

I am particularly interested in Detroit because it is a place that has experienced an active form of extreme erasure, of transience and of loss that has embedded itself on the psyche of those that live there and those that pass through. Decadence and erasure evokes a very specific pathos and Detroit’s has reverberated around the globe as a kind of symbolic foreshadowing of the imminent end of American Empire.

That said; this is an ongoing project in which my intention is to engage the complexity of Detroit as a lived space as well as its supposed fall from grace.

Kaleidoscope on the 8 hills

Hong Kong – the quaint city of skyscrapers, a mazes reflections. He is always new and never stops to amaze, it gives a new look, gives new perspectives. This city is always in a hurry and these skyscrapers are silent guards, which are turned to the sky, but by staying for a second and then lifting the sight up, you’ll see in the sun another world – a world of slender geometry, architectural harmony, in its pure perfection.
