Another India (1)

 

SCAN0287

From March through to April, I revisited India. During this time I made a series of images, which together form Another India. A series which I hope introduces a different India: one that escapes the romantic, colonial imagination that most tourists expect, whilst also subverting the media’s poverty-strewn imagery. This is an India of complexity, that has a tempestuous relationship with contemporaneity, for better and worse. My India as a mixed-raced Indian: one of familiarity and estrangement, of home and holiday, of complete contradictions.
