The photographs presented here are from the series “Temporary Solitudes”, exhibited last week at Delhi’s India International Centre.
I imagined that the protagonists of these shots, immersed in their solitary way, could have had that contact with themselves which is a prelude to a deep inner discovery. I imagined that they had reached for a moment of solitude just in order to look for answers to those relentless questions that we all have within us.
I imagined that their temporary solitudes would enlighten their lives and would give them a clearer and more authentic vision of themselves. By meditating on these possible “miracles” of the everyday life, I took these photographs — looking for a deep connection with each of the unsuspecting subjects of this series, while consciously accompanied by my own temporary solitude.
