My photographs visually express the notion of transience and
split cultural identity caused by the act of migration. I have been
viewing this issue through the lens of my own personal history
and cultural journey from India to the United States. This journey
left me feeling disconnected- unable to anchor myself in any
particular cultural framework. I have therefore formed a hybrid
identity, a patching together of two cultures within one person.
In my work I use my own family snapshots, which are recontextualized
alongside fragmented images and staged imagery to reveal
the correlations between generations, cultures and memory.
