We know who we are. We know what we like, we know what we dislike. We have our habits and we want things in a specific way. We have goals, a path, things we should do and should not. We carve out a nice path for ourself, we keep walking on that fixed path, life is comfortable. Life gets busy on that path, building a career, jobs, setting up businesses, earning a living, family responsibilities, giving time to our loved ones, trying to live a good lifestyle, all of this is essential for a good life yes.
Getting stuck to that polished path you have carved out for yourself for such a long time, have you wondered what part of you lies in the Jungles? The parts of you, that you conveniently throw off in the jungle thinking they make you weak. Being emotional, vulnerable, crying, feeling shy, feeling uncertain, feeling bold..these qualities of you that you think the world cannot digest in and that don't show your strength are the parts of you that are true. The strong part of you that you show to the world and keep believing in it is the tip of an iceberg, the mass below it is what builds you up and is so so beautiful!
I am passionate about capturing that part of you that lies in the Jungles, the parts of you that you might find provoking, the parts of you that you very reluctantly open yourself up to. The time for reuniting with yourself is due. You have shunned it for long and now its time to go back to it, because that is You! Bringing that part of you back to yourself will never slow you down but will bring you peace, it will fill the gaps of emptiness or vacuum you've been feeling all along inspite of all the luxury and the comfort you've given yourself. Let's go home!
Photographing Protima was a surreal experience for her and for me. When she opened herself up to me, I felt like she was holding a mirror. We are so similar that it is creepy, our stories go on the same path, we are thinking the same thing, I have never experienced that with anyone ever. I would literally call her my Soul Twin. A day of letting the Wild untamed side of her be, being okay with it made us both very emotional. The experience was so beautiful, something shifted in her and in me. I opened the doors of myself that i had shut for very long. So this post is dedicated to this magical experience we've had and they stay with us in the form of these beautiful portraits.
There is more coming from this shoot. Stay tuned. Have you ever discovered a part of yourself you thought never existed? Please share your stories either in the comments, or in mail (email@example.com) or in person. I would love to listen to them.
