Technology and People
It's pretty common now to experience this. People get so glued to their phones that they forget to have a meaningful conversation with the person sitting next to them. I observed my parent do this when they came to visit me in the US. They would sit and scroll through the Whatsapp feed without talking to each other. One day I decided to capture it.
For my grad school capstone project I was working on the topic of Loneliness. I was trying to capture individual people in a landscape to get that solitary and lonely feeling. I captured the first one while walking on the Highline in New York City. The second one at Harangi Backwaters in Coorg. And the third one at Fort Niagara in New York.
Twins playing in water
Children love playing with water and its just absolute joy to watch them and photograph them. I was lucky to find and capture twins on two separate occasions. The first one is in Chicago and the second in Detroit.
Everybody loves a newborn. They are just too cute. What about a newborn monkey. Captured this at Devarayanadurga Hills in Tumkur.
For my personal inventory project, I collected the things I loved the most. Things that I made sure not to leave behind when I moved from India to the United States. I put them together and took this shot.
When I was traveling around the United States, I captured these mannequins. They were so gorgeous to look at and so life like. I had never seen anything like them before.
As amused as I was by the mannequins, so was I by the liquor display at various bars and restaurants across United States. The displays were so eye catching. One can only wonder the amount of thought and work that goes into creating something like this.
Captured these on the same trip. Oh, who doesn't love New York. First one is at Thousand Islands, NY and the second one is the Flat Iron Building, NY. And the last one is in California.
Don't judge me. I take gorgeous portraits too.
Whether it's at home, a restaurant or at a museum, objects continue to fascinate me.
