A thoughtful photographic journey into the fascinating city of Pondicherry - the former French colony in India. Captures the essence of how the East meets the West today, in Pondicherry. Pondicherry is an extended photo essay, which has as its main focus, the photographer's perception and visual interpretation of the city of Pondicherry. The photographer journeys into the metaphorical and anthropological folds of the city, searching for a sense of "place" - his interpretation of a specific environment and how it's inhabited. The photographer goes beyond the walls and penetrates into the private sphere, into homes, spaces and routines, which exemplify a certain culture or cultures, always searching for visual messages that compose the tapestry of perception, both of the past and of the present. The perception of "place" is also offered in words. The photographer has sought out the participation of several noted French and Indian writers, who have offered very personal and insightful views of Pondicherry - words and images working in a complimentary way for an artistic perception of Pondicherry.
