Crafting My Heritage

The Crafting My Heritage series comprises a range of ethereal line drawings featuring villagers engaged in Indian ethnic arts and crafts, inspired by my visits to rural India. The illustrations are captured from the perspective of the Indian diaspora, highlighting the need to preserve traditional folk art and enhancing our appreciation of cultural practices. Originally created as photogram prints, each hand drawn design has been manually processed in the photography darkroom, resulting in bold and delicate and intricate lines.
