“Panna Meena Ka Kund is a 16th century step-well that is square-shaped. There are stairs on all four sides until the bottom, where you find water. I remember I wasn’t very excited that morning. I was in India for a photography workshop, and our instructor had told us that the day will mostly consist of architecture photography. I honestly thought it was going to be so boring. I wanted to see people!
I couldn’t stop taking photos when we arrived.. the different shapes I saw. There were so many steps. Everywhere. All over. You’d find shapes from every angle. It was beautiful, soothing, symmetrical. It was as if I literally had to “mind each step”, otherwise I would have missed a shot. That day, I fell in love with architecture photography. I didn’t think of it as architecture photography, though. I thought of it as making shapes in art class.”
Catch Me if You Sand
“I kind of got lucky with this shot. He was so fast. So cool. So confident. He knew what he was doing. As if he was born to be the King of Dunes. I was camping in Fayoum with friends for a few days. We had been going up and down sand dunes for more than an hour; and it was almost impossible to catch him. I knew B from university, which was a while back. I didn’t see him a lot since we graduated so the memory I had of him stayed as is. He was loved by everyone, fun, kind, hospitable, but I never really imagined him on a motorbike..
This shot makes me wonder how perspectives can change if you just look them using a different angle. Literally and figuratively. Now I have a different story to tell about B.”
