Ank in Hindi means a mark.
What memories mean to us.
Looking back at them we want to relive those moments, thoughts, that context. We want to read that chapter from the book of our lives. We of course move on. Carry on with our lives. But every once in a while life gives us a breather. And we feel like calling an old friend, or reliving moments in life which were precious. I am not greedy for permanence, but I do hope the joy of looking back does not fade with time.
In the last 5 years or so, I shot over 7 dozen weddings in over 25 cities across India. Being from Bangalore I've shot quite a few weddings in Bangalore, Hyderabad, Goa & Kerala. And have been lucky to travel all the way to Himachal, Rajasthan & Gujrat, Jharkhand, MP, UP and more places. I have met lovely people and made so many friends all over India.
Many weeks or months later some of these friends write back to me saying how they relived their day
looking at all pictures again. I acknowledge with a smile and get inspired to create more impressions for the chapters of our memory.
