Photographer's Note

There is a sense of belonging that men have in living in a village or a city where his ancestors have lived for countless generations. Behind closed windows there exist separate lives, yet when they come out in the open, in the village square or the neighborhood cafe, familiarity breeds a kinship that makes them transparent. One may imagine that the opacity that exists behind shuttered windows in cosmopolitan cities, by contrast, extends to the faceless flow of men and women on their impersonal streets.

Nonetheless, as events in Europe, the Balkans, Rawanda, or in the Indian subcontinent at the time of its birth pang and beyond have shown us, the identity established on account of cohabitation over generations can evaporate in a matter of days.
