THE LAND TURNED GOLD

The Land Turned Gold - 50 kms from Pune, lies the Khandoba temple on a hillock. On auspicious days, devotees throng the same and smear it & themselves with turmeric. I spent a day at Jejuri and came away with these images.

The climb of 500 steps is mildly arduous. Stone steps turned yellow with turmeric make it a slippery affair.

ECOSYSTEM

In Jan 2016, I visited the Juhu Beach in Mumbai and found it to be an EcoSystem in itself. I photographed the beach across 2016 and the pictures are now in a book by the same name.

ON FILM

On Film - 


I was around when film photography was the only way to shoot pictures. But the camera remained inaccessible as it was a luxury reserved only for special occasions or family trips. When life and luxuries permitted, I bought several film cameras and rolls and went about shooting these.
