About The Artwork

In the 16th century, after destroying one of India's Royal Palaces in the state of Kerala, they returned to build the Mattancherry Palace. When I visited in 1979 I wasn't as impressed with the building as I was with the murals inside. The murals are based on the ‘Ramayana’ and the ‘Mahabharata’ two great Indian epics involving legends associated with Hindu gods. It is only of late that I scanned the Kodachrome slides from that time and reconstructed them to include some of our current gods. In this case Jay Z and Beyonce.

There is an art to seeing. Sometimes the focus is literal; other times it is interpretive. As a photographer I see the image I'm photographing and then I make it into the image I want. The world is my canvas. Having spent a significant amount of time in India, a country that I love, many of my images were born there. I, then took it upon myself to transform them so that the literal image isn't what the camera saw but rather what my heart saw. Prior to picking up my first digital camera in 2000, I shot mostly slide film. I have over 12,000 slides that I took with Kodachrome 25. When Kodachrome stopped producing it, I switched to Kodachrome 64 and eventually film. I love digital because it affords me an unlimited amount of options. My Hudson River images are held in private collections and many of the images of India are held by private collectors in India, most notably Mr. Biki Oberoi, owner of the Oberoi hotels.
