This is not the end

ongoing body of work

Crowded, corrupt, chaotic, poor, and unsettling with deeply rooted inequalities. Welcoming, cultured, wealthy, peaceful, happy, and uniquely timeless. There is no other place where predictions of disastrous collapse and global supremacy must be treated with such equal seriousness.

For more than 10 years, I have wandered the Indian subcontinent, from Kerala, to Calcutta, and from the Mumbai outskirts to the Pushkar palaces. Over time I learned that the only way in, is head first, right into its heart and into the hearts of its people. These images are a testament to that, a sequence of photographs seen and lived in a place where the human past is still alive.
