MI MUMBAI

In December 2013, I returned to India to A. get married and B. start a project that I had been thinking about for the last two years, inspired by Avedon's "The West."

This most recent body of work, titled MI MUMBAI, translates in the local language to “I am Mumbai.” The images are a combination of My Mumbai: my experience of Mumbai, my friends, my circle and the Mumbai that surrounds me. The entire project has been shot on the streets of Mumbai with a white backdrop in natural light.

The images are my attempt to give the Mumbaikers agency against standardized modes of identification, thwarting caste and class systems, while simultaneously creating a vision of equality.
