I decided to explore the theme of Abandonment purely through medium of photography.

[A decaying wooden spiral staircase. For the best effect see large.]

All of my life I have been caught in places I don’t belong. As a child I would dive into the furthest reaches of the family photo album to see what ancient photographs that had been taken, categorised, plastered, passed down and then forgotten. I decided to use this lifelong handicap and convert it into photography. Wielding a camera at last I had a license to explore the many wonderful, forgotten corners of the landscape and people’s lives and life around me. There is so much beauty in the overlooked details of our world.

On a secondary note, I'll be offline for the great part of the next two weeks, as I'm off to Kashmir.

I absolutely love and adore your photographs. Thank you for sharing them. They bring back wonderful memories of a Mumbai of 20 years ago and make me strangly nostalgic for it.
