Double Take

Double Take is a series which quotes from 19th and 20th Century European images representing the people and geographies of South Asia and  surrounding colonial territories. The images are altered by hand in life-size watercolor paintings and also through repainted digital reproductions. The result is a humorous and uncanny dialogue between past and present geo-political ambitions. The images are sourced from engravings found in lllustrated newspapers, books,  ethnographic and studio photography.
