Back to Colour

Red and Roses
Some recent collages made using Desi bride magazines big and small. 
Their full of lush colour spreads and head to toe images of models vary greatly 
from pure Western bridal magazines and fashion magazines. 
I remember reading somewhere that even in the Indian subcontinent, 
the poorest are dressed in vibrant colours.
Colour chains
In fact it reminds me of the beautifully shot and written film Monsoon Wedding (2001), 
directed by Mira Nair and written by Sabrina Dhawan
Colour is in its element and even in the darkest moments of the film, 
colour is boundless and just as complex and gritty too.
