There is this picture of my Grandmum- she must be about eighteen years old. It’s a plain and simple profile shot but it says so much about the time it was taken, about her…it’s exactly what it is meant to be – timeless. I am sure we all have similar photos of our grandparents / parents/uncles/aunts taken at various stages of their lives and not only at their weddings . Looking through these photos is what inspired us to do this shoot. We think everyone should get photos taken of themselves at different stages just as a reminder to ourselves and just a way to record time and change.And perhaps for our children and their children and their children. We are never going to be as young as we are today (never miss an opportunity to throw in a cliche !) .And no matter what you say, that pouty face selfie with your dark glasses on that you took with your iPhone just isn’t going to cut it 30 years from now.
There is this great project that celebrates exactly these photographs and memories- The Indian Memory Project.
The one with the idea- April Sher Bhaika
The one with the make up and hair styling skills – Rabia Mehra (check out her facebook page here)
The one with the beauty – Kudrat Kahlon
The one with the camera- Kismet Jewell Nakai
