A trip to India

After a life-changing journey to Rajasthan in 2008, artist Karen Knorr wanted to celebrate the visual richness found in the fables, myths and stories of northern India. The artist used sacred and secular sites to highlight the caste system, femininity and its relationship with the animal world.Live animals are inserted into the architectural sites, fusing high resolution digital with analogue photography. Animals photographed in sanctuaries, zoos and cities inhabit palaces, mausoleums , temples and holy sites, interrogating Indian cultural heritage and rigid hierarchies.
