The best photograph I have ever clicked must be the one I snapped just after scattering my father’s bones in a river in Kerala. I was struck by how white the bones were, even after being burned and what not. Even though I found the whole experience of the rite immensely sad, I also found it beautiful in ways I cannot fully explain. I had to capture that moment, and the only device I had on me was an old Nokia cell phone. Just as well.
Just yesterday, I chanced upon the photograph and, again, was taken with its poignancy.
Using just that photograph (superimposing its mirror image on itself, having multiple copies of it laid over each other at different angles, inverting and changing the colors, etc.), I created these images on Photoshop.
