This World Of Dew Series, 2015



Chandan Gomes

In Chandan Gomes’ This World of Dew, real and imaginary spaces become conflated as he seeks to make ‘real,’ the fantastical landscape drawings, found at a hospice in Jaipur, by a young child called Aini Haseena Bano. While travelling extensively, Gomes photographed places that were similar to the mountains drawn by Aini in her colouring book. This book is a collection of those photographs printed alongside the drawings.
