What a lovely surprise to finally discover how unlonely being alone can be.” ~ Ellen Burstyn
Downtown by night was my exploration of the spaces and streets around my living space in Wilson, North Carolina, during a month-long artist residency for photography.
Coming from a crowded city like Delhi, where there is never a moment of visual emptiness or a soundless space. A city where I grew up watching crowded streets, and lack of visual privacy.
Through these images, I am trying to explore the surreal experience of the absolute emptiness and eeriness of the nights in the little downtown, that became my home for a few days.
