RESIDENCIES
Artist Residency, Academy of Fine Arts, Mumbai, India Oct 2004 - Nov 2004
I worked on a self structured documentary photography project. This involved a social interaction and collaboration with locals and associates. I lived both independently and centrally, and with an Indian family on the outskirts of Mumbai. My experiences culminated in a photographic portrayal of the intimacies and personal fears born out of such a diverse attempt to ‘fit in’ and become part of an extremely specific and traditional society and culture.
