Take my Hand


“Touch my skin,and tell me what you’re thinking
Take my hand and show me where we’re going
Lie down next to me, look into my eyes and tell me, oh tell me what you’re seeing
So sit on top of the world and tell me how you’re feeling
What you feel now is what I feel for you
Take my hand and if I’m lying to you
I’ll always be alone
If I’m lying to you…”
(Lyrics from “Take my hand” by Dido)

This is one more image concerning the lost Indo-Greek Kingdom and as it is becoming a kind of game, I’ll let you wonder if this a close-up of a Greek sculpture from Le Louvre museum in Paris or a picture of a pehlwan (Indian wrestler) taken in Varanasi (Benaras)…

Dido sings “Take my hand”:


When shadows seduce

When shadows seduce


There is a lady I know who lives in Paris since a long time.
She is always trying to seduce anyone who comes nearby, she is not doing much, just trying to unbutton her dress and she is doing this since a very long time.

When I met her I was too young to understand but I could already feel her heart beating when I was visiting the palace where she stays.

Recently I decided to spend some time with her and I was talking to her while she was playing with shadows in which she kept wrapping herself, maybe she wanted to hide a little thinking that I would dislike the embrace of time on her body.

She forgot that she is ageless, people even think that she is the concept of beauty as she stands for ever in the greek sculpture room of the Hellenistic period which is in Le Louvre museum in Paris.

I have been using colours in order to emphase the naturalism and movement and to provide a fallacy of equivocation.

“Does that make me crazy?”

"Does that make me crazy?"

“My heroes had the heart to Lose their lives out on a limb
And all I remember is thinking, I want to be like them
Ever since I was little, ever since I was little it looked like fun
And it’s no coincidence I’ve come
And I can die when I’m done”
(Crazy – Lyrics by Gnarls Barkley)

This is a portait of Anand the majhi (hindi word for boatman), who oftenly poses for me. 
It was shot a few weeks ago on the upper terrace of the house in Varanasi (Benaras).
As I am working on a topic reminding the lost Indo-Greek kingdom, I mixed it with another picture of a bust of the Hellenistic period which I took in Le Louvre museum (Paris) in order to play with the viewer’s perception.

And suddenly this statue smiles, 
it’s alive…
“Maybe I’m crazy
Maybe you’re crazy
Maybe we’re crazy

Nelly Furtado sings CRAZY:

Coming Back To Life

Coming Back To Life

“…Lost in thought and lost in time
While the seeds of life and the seeds of change were planted
Outside the rain fell dark and slow
While I pondered on this dangerous but irresistible pastime
I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the moment had arrived
For killing the past and coming back to life…”
(“Coming Back To Life” by the Pink Floyd)

This picture was shot one evening at Le Louvre museum in Paris.
There was a room which was not opened to the public and where this statue was standing among many others.
Some were covered with fabrics or plastic materials and some were still in boxes.
This one was special with those nylon ribbons and inscription, I found it very contemporary in a way.
I started to give some colour to the skin as if this marble statue wanted to breath and was “coming back to life”…
