india art song

11.21.2011


After a life-changing journey to Rajasthan, India in 2008, artist Karen Knorr wanted to celebrate the visual richness found in the fables, myths and stories of northern India using sacred and secular sites to highlight the caste system, femininity and its relationship with the animal world. Interiors of palaces, mausoleums, and holy sites were photographed with a large format camera and a variety of animals were photographed separately in sanctuaries and zoos. Knorr combined the two elements, fusing high resolution with analogue photography. The result is an impressive and spellbinding series I hope to see in person someday. (via Honestly WTF)

These are incredible - even more so because I have been in (or at least, stood on the edges of) so many of these rooms.

Very gorgeous!
I studied the art within the architecture of Babur's palace as well as Shah Jahan's and how it related to their views on certain religions within the region.
I definitely would like to visit the palaces one day!

When setting out on a photographic holiday, always provide yourself with two cameras, one to leave in the train going and the other to leave in the cab coming back.
