Beautiful investigation into the design of everyday objects as designed by everyday people - non "designers". Takes a photographic approach that explores aesthetics, utility and form, which also serves as a cultural commentary on sustainability & reuse. Noteworthy for its research method: trawling the bazaars of Jaipur & Delhi for objects.
