As a photographer, I have had the opportunity to take pictures of beautiful women. Knowing them, I could see that they are happy and jovial persons.
But occasionally my lens found them lost in a sombre mood, may be just for a very brief moment. Those moments caught on lens had a layer of melancholy feeling, adding depth to their faces and making them even more beautiful. I have used the polaroid instant photo like presentation of the portraits to make the series reminiscent of the 70s decade. I believe the ‘70s was the most stylish, distinct and culturally independent decade of the last century.
