The following submission is a documentary photography project around the vicinity of Yelahanka New Town, Bangalore. These are pictures of the multitudinous white people on hoardings and advertisement boards in suburban India. Shot as documentary and 'real' photos, these images are an attempt to look at the ways in which the allure of white skin functions in my surroundings making these foreign people quite 'present' around me. The photo series exists as a zine/book on my website (link), I am attaching a few of the really evocative ones as my submission.

The one about warthogs is from the Nairobi Game Park.

The “painting” sign is also located in Nairobi.

My favorite sign is one that I have passed two or three times on a road in the desert in southern Utah when driving across the country. Unfortunately, I never took a picture. It is located on a stretch of road through country that is absolutely flat, unvegetated, and generally desolate. It reads: “If you lived here, you’d be home now.”
