Intemporality

I never remember my good pictures. I never remember composing or even clicking the shutter. But those are the pictures I long for. To me those are the 'real' pictures. Unstirred by the conscious mind life at that moment is intemporal - 'truth' lies there. Photography is not an outward journey to make pictures but an inner journey to find truth. Documenting my homeland was a test and a challenge for me. This self initiated project began as a search for my identity and was as much a photography project as it was a personal awakening. This is my attempt to understand my roots in a country from which I sometimes feel close to and sometimes feel alienated from. My mornings would sometimes be filled with joy that the unexpected lay ahead and at others with resentment that I would be confronted with the banality of the obvious and the instantly recognizable. I was more interested in seeing than showing. A journey of disparateness, or perhaps a journey of reconciliation, either way, in the end I let go of my inhibitions and sought for nothing in particular but 'aimlessly' let my voyage become my project.
