MI MUMBAI

In this body of work, I clearly pay tribute to Avedon's brilliant series, "The West." This project has been years in the making and titled MI MUMBAI, which 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 location around Mumbai with only a white backdrop and mostly 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.
