Often an image may be a memory or an experience of the photographer’s recent past. Through my project entitled On Changes I have tried to approach the broader field of staged photography. I have recounted different stories based on memories and experiences – not necessarily my own – from my recent past, considering the transitional age that I am going through, educationally as well as socially, very significant.
While growing up, the first signs of desire and fear begin to appear. I have tried to express them as unprecedented sentiments through the reconstruction of moments that have or have had special meaning for me. These moments represent experiences; memories and even deeper thoughts equally hauled from the conscious and the unconscious and space serves – sometimes literally, sometimes figuratively – the narrative of those moments.
