Indian sensibility introduces a powerful combination of the sensual and the spiritual, to be found in the imaging of women. Here represented by a photo I shot while working for a Bollywood dance show.
It’s accompanied by two quotes:
Since you ask, I’ll tell you of the lover’s night:
glass dreams that pierce sleepless eyes.
Meena Kumari – installation by Shebe Chhachhi, 1996
All women everywhere in the world
Are thy forms, O Goddess!
