ठहराव is an exhibition of photographs displaying stillness. I’ve tried to explore this feeling through body language, gaze and portraits of human beings, documented in various landscapes and scenarios. Working on this project I realized that sea face is one of my most preferred settings. It’s a place where people come to digest their emotions, spend time with their loved ones or just be alone with their thoughts amongst the sight and sounds of the large skies and waves. Otherwise, I find peace walking around taking photographs of people on the streets. I feel that ‘ठहराव’ as a word explains this state of inertia and calmness. I like to shoot these photographs using film cameras, 35mm and medium format film to be specific. Using these I’m able to photograph at a slower pace than digital due to the limitations of cost, time and number of exposures. I also develop my negatives at home; that allows me to have greater control on the final image. I find the entire process of shooting on film engaging and expressive in its own way, each of these photographs are physical entities in this digital world. These photographs were shot in a candid manner throughout Bombay, Varanasi and Delhi.
