SEARCHING FOR SARIS ( Working title )
Over the course of 2017, in collaboration with a writer, I will be travelling to major Sari weaving and marketing centres in India. Over the course of our over-land journey we will traverse a minimum of 13 states across the length and breadth of India. The Sari pervades the fabric of our society to such an extent that it is easy to take it for granted. The ubiquitous fabric will be the invisible thread that runs through this project. The images in this gallery are not so much about fabric, textile or weaving technique but a travelog of our journey.
