Color Falls Down: My photographs visually express the notion of transience and split cultural identity caused by the act of migration. I have been viewing this issue through the lens of my own personal history and cultural journey. My move from India to the United States in 1993 left me feeling that I do not belong fully to either culture – leaving me unable to anchor myself in any particular cultural framework.
This disconnection from both cultures has changed me. I feel I have a hybrid identity, a patching together of two cultures within one person. Photography has helped me bridge the gap between my two cultures while coming to terms with this dual nature. My digital photographs reflect the tension inherent in this dual nature, by juxtaposing fragmented images, family snapshots, and carefully staged imagery. – Priya Kambli
Kambli’s book titled “Color Falls Down,” published in 2010, is available for purchase
at Antenna Gallery and online at www.priyakambli.com.
