I’m very happy to announce my first Barcelona exhibition. This project has been a while in the making and is a collaboration between myself and my friend Arji (a poet). The project is currently being exhibited in La Marmota, Barcelona (Carrer del comte Borrell, 107) and we would love for you to visit!
During 2014 and 2015, myself and Arji both visited India on separate trips. I returned home after 3 months of backpacking full of incredible memories and a large number of photographs documenting my journey. On my return, Arji was inspired and impassioned by my images and began writing words around his favourite photos. The exhibition soon formed out of this simple collaboration, the accompanying poems and their relationship to the images explore themes of experience, memory, meaning and re-appropriation.
Arji and I have been friends for over 10 years but this is the first collaboration of their work. Combining the dexterity of Arji’s words with the subtlety of my photographs, the audience enjoys an emotional and thoughtful look at India and its people.

Arji specialises in working with local communities to create words that fully capture the essence of a people and their culture. In recent years, he has completed a series of short stories, a full-length musical and an array of reader-specific short poems.
