An Afternoon Ballad
Memory of a summer where the afternoon had a scent of the Jasmine in her hair and the Eucalyptus incense lit in her house located on a quiet cul de sac. She shed the garb of her inhibitions and reveled in every inch of her skin.
I’m Aastha Manchanda, a photographer based in Goa, India.
Specialising in fashion & fine art photography, I’m trying to hone my skills at photographing still life. If I could make images of a world that consisted of only flowers, I would have no complaints.
Judged by Tim Barber:
Inspired by the Grand Prix, Takahashi Miki’s work, I thought it would be fun and interesting to make a compilation of the widely diverse and eclectic work submitted for this contest. When edited and organized, the “memory” submissions, sent in from dozens of artists, become a kind of collective-memory-collage, a dream sequence of disparate clues from a kaleidoscopic narrative.
