In’ Transparent’ series I try to replace the concrete form of the image to combination of lines, shapes, colour spots by using different combinations of illusions and paradoxical forms of coloured clothes and light passing through it on the river bank that evokes an emotion/connection in the viewer.
I frequently visited Ganga-sagar, a religious place at the confluence of River Ganga and Bay of Bengal. A temple of Kapil Muni is the main attraction to visit there. People normally come here to pay homage at the temple after bathing at Ganga -sager. After bathing pilgrimage normally dry their wet clothes in the open space on the river bank in the morning time. An abstract feeling came to my mind by seeing their drying clothes apart from their religious activities. I was attracted by the colours of transparent clothes, the light passing through the clothes, and the people and their shadows in motion behind the drying clothes.
