ARTIST'S STATEMENT //
Originally from India, I have lived in Boston, New York and Cape Town. Currently I am dividing my time between Zurich and Bombay. My love for photography began in the early 80s, when my Dad gifted me a red Olympus camera. I was down with chicken pox and was in home-quarantine, but I enthusiastically photographed everything in sight. Since then, a camera has been my constant companion over the years. The turning point came about a year and a half ago when I went on a photo tour to Masai Mara. It was in the vast open plains of Africa that I got bitten by the photography bug. I love photography because it has helped me find my voice. It has been a refuge for me during difficult times and a safe place to explore a multitude of emotions of motherhood, conflict, hope, love, isolation and resilience.
