Today, I published a short interview with Divyakshi Gupta, a photographer and blogger from Mumbai.
When I first came upon Divsi’s blog, I was drawn to her use of textures and colors, and also realized we share an obsession for photographing doors. I like what she says about them: “Doors are more than mere photographic subjects or pretty frames. They are stories.”
Viewing her beautiful door images from India has inspired me to gather some of my own photographs of doors over the years. I have many more in my archives — these are just a handful.
