This story was inspired by the Indian playful God Krishna.  The iconography of Krishna usually depicts him with blue skin, adorned with a yellow silk rope and a peacock feather crown. All of these beautiful historical images and striking colours triggered my imagination and I decided to create a series of photographs based on these inspirations. The colourful flowers and repetition of objects were also inspired by the work of French artists & lovers, Pierre et Gilles.

I was inspired by the Russian film 'Sisters'. The strong bond between relatives. I have been through a lot in my life and my sister was the most supportive person. Now we are older and living separate lives. I wanted to show some of the fun things which I did with my sister: doing each others hair, hanging out in our bedroom, dressing up and going out to eat. So here are my memories, enjoy!
