Jugaad ? Of Love and Inimtacy

Jugaad / Of Love and Intimacy
In this ongoing project public gestures of intimacy form the departure point to explore friendship and love between men in India.
Deeply moved by these physical affirmations of bonding that are mostly absent in the West, through portraits and interviews I engage in questions surrounding the fluidity of masculinity and sexuality in India. How traditional South Asian modes of male to male interaction might be challenged by Western points of views, dichotomies and gender identity politics is of particular interest.
