As if in sync with a changing India, our family home saw a complete transformation as we embarked on a two year construction project which offered a visual and sensory feast, sometimes bordering on overload. But more importantly, the experience gave us all an opportunity to unburden ourselves of the restrictions of the past in preparation for a journey into the future. In effect, house number 2 in E block was seeking new directions.
A construction project in India is, to say the least, a chaotic, colorful event as mostly rural migrant workers create urban dreams. A worker holding up a light bulb as his comrades labored late into the night made for a striking image. And it made me wonder, will the light take them to the future too?
"E-2 the Future" is an extension of my earlier multiple award-winning series "F1 to the Future", "T3 to the Future" and "Toons to the Future" which present a fresh perspective on how - despite the odds - India is evolving, while debunking stereotypical views about the country.

A self-taught photographer and film-maker, I have always strived to celebrate both the moving and the still image in my visual expressions. Born in Kenya and raised in India, I am also influenced and inspired by cross-cultural artistic endeavors.
My film-making activities have included four short films (and some commissioned films) made for Filmaka.com.
My photography has featured in promotional material for the Swiss Arts Council's India office. I have received over 30 honors at the International Photography Awards, PX3 Awards and the Color Awards (Photography Masters Cup).
