Origin Myth

 

The project draws on an archive of photographs taken by my late grandfather in India in the mid-twentieth century. It looks at an environmental disaster, colonialism, the rise of Hollywood cinema in India and, body culture alongside family pictures that feature my bodybuilder father. The project uses collage to create new narratives and connections between photographs of colonial and body politics, memory, masculinity, and trauma.
