Grey Space is an archival project about the boundaries and
curatorial possibilities within found photographs and material
memory in India. The photographs used here were mostly found
in family albums, personal archives and in corners of thrift stores
in various Indian cities and are juxtaposed with photographs made
during the process of researching. The project is being planned
to be made into a physical book that includes the deconstruction
of photographs into visual narratives which explores the questions
like: “How many possibilities exist in photographs that are never found?
How many photographs exist within one photograph?
Can we alter the meaning of photographs by merely placing them
in a unique sequence? Can archival photographs become an object
of contemporary discourse? Can we change the paths of forever lost
and forgotten photographs that once held great emotional values?
