“I shot this inside a beautiful home in Bandra. I love the simplicity of the image; it has a sense of calm to it. I enjoy my time in solitude as I am always on the go, which is why I’m not complaining about this period of self-isolation. The downside, however, is that I can’t roam the neighborhood now to take pictures.”
“This still life image encapsulates my current life in self-isolation. A set daily routine helps me feel anchored to normalcy and engaging in creative activities makes this time productive. Revisiting images from my archives, baking a cake for the first time, practicing self-care with massage tools, afternoon cups of tea, to nurturing our orchid plant and waiting eagerly for it to bloom when warmer days arrive.”
“My neighbour thumps upstairs with a restructured walk. Room to end of room to balcony railing, swerve at kitchen, cut back to room and continue. Birds in the mornings and crickets at night. Are they back? Were they always around? Secret egg sellers have popped up and eggs are laid, relayed, delayed and mislaid under the dark of masks and the spritz of sanitisers in building societies. Netflix announces itself like a heart attack and I see images of people crowded in small spaces and feel a sense of dread. I hope this leaves me soon. The new sounds include the chime of video calls within which are familiar sounds. Of pressure cookers and partners, the muffled background noises of living. The sound of Pril, a pop, a squeeze, a pretty green chemical bubble released and clang and chaos – utensils washed with a certain drama. Clanging plates have now become historic metaphors, I suppose. The faraway sounds of other people’s songs drift in and out of evenings and there’s a sense of hope – someone’s making a good time of it. And there is, cornily enough, the sound of silence – whirring fans, rustled sheets, creaking chairs, a flipped page, an itch scratched, cats whispering past legs and someone flapping out a large sheet to dry like a giant flag of peace.”
