PartialEdges is a photobook published during my residency in Leh with FarsideCollective and RoundThemOranges in Sept 2021. During the micro-residency I developed a series of photographs and prints, following are a few pages from the book.
The city of Leh is currently undergoing a massive infrastructural boom, with a significant percentage of residents converting their houses into homestays and hotels as the capital's primary mode of income relies on tourism. Documenting construction materials, the following piece is an ode to the city as the materials imprints it's coming future. Montaged with a small poem where these materials form a sensual environment within the format and express their/our desires.
