beauty sucks me in like a surreal drug. I grew up in suburban Bombay, India.
It's a great place with lots
of energy, but little feast for the eyes. About 2
years back I moved to Pittsburgh, PA, a city with
character in its landscape and architecture, and lot
of beautiful women. I had to pick up the camera.
I photographed friends and music artists, and soon
found myself capturing the purest, finest embodiment
of visual beauty ... the nude woman.
I like to
capture moods, expressions and body language, with the
model usually portraying a character in a theme of
personal interest to me.
Inspirations include: untied hair, jewelry, tattoos, sunglasses, hats,
tall boots, Rock & Roll, vintage, baroque, belly dancers, ancient courtesans,
of mystery, anything feminine, anything outrageous, Fall, cigarettes, guns, roses,
and the color red.
