The folk of Karnataka is very vast. The practical knowledge and the experience hidden in these practices are mind-blowing and beautiful. The daily nature’s business such as sunrise, sunset, moonrise, eclipses , the natural disasters such as earthquakes, cyclones, lightening and the diseases are given a god form and worshiped when there was no science. And these were always under change due to ever changing socio-economic conditions of India over the ages.
This project is all about such unseen , unexplored folk practices where I am trying to visually document them with the intention of study and more than that , to record them before they change their style and form due to modernization or completely vanish. My effort is also to express these visuals artistically while narrating the stories .
