I love Bollywood, the energy, the choreography, the premise of innocence and the costumes.

One reason I watch Bollywood videos is because Indian culture has a different relationship to color, unlike in my native culture the accent colors are all strong and saturated. Indian culture embraces strong, vibrant color and I feel it is a reflection of their embrace and celebration of life.

Almost all of the Indian homes I photograph integrate strong accent colors. I like it and want to internalize the aesthetic. I kind of need to if I want to photograph the homes properly.
