INDEX

I work on memory, the memory, and the disjunction between “what I remember and how it must have been because that can’t be how I remember it.” My family history is essential in this sense because it’s something that I understand, and it’s something that I can enter in any way I want and I feel very intimate with that history. I also have this sense (maybe it’s the story I told myself) that I’m reliving my parent's and my grandparents' lives together to bring something that could make sense to my own displacement as a migrant from an early age. I think I began to think about memory, to make a sense on all of it.

the possibilities of portraiture

we shall meet again


hobbled by life, but triumphal all the same

the Journey
distance


remembrance and inheritance

this was my home fifty years ago
I was separated from the rest of my family in Delhi
we were on a country road that led to my ancestral village.
