Ketaki Sheth

Synopsis

Bombay Mix brings together the street photographs of leading Indian photographer Ketaki Sheth, images taken over a period of almost 20 years. Bombay is a city that never sleeps. Its population (17.7 million) and its geography put a premium on space. A lot of ‘living’ happens on the street, where a disparate and unlikely blend of humanity defines its boundaries in a tightly confined space. The thrill of Bombay is the thrill of contrast. The streetscape of the city is as much psychedelic as it is kaleidoscopic: there is so much to see. What is most difficult to discern is geometry, the internal order
amidst the clutter.
