Works in Progress: Night Photography, Udaipur 01

While I was in Udiapur the first time, I was here for an artist residency. I made posts about that experience and shows how the work progressed while I was there. Now that I am back I am working on several projects. I thought I would be nice to share those projects as they progress and get your feedback on the work.


Ever since I met Meropi we have been talking about doing night photography. It took almost a year for us to start. First, I had to go back to the States to finish out my lease on my apartment. Then when I got here she did not have a tripod. She had to go to Greece. But when she returned she got a tripod. So, finally we made our first trip out into the night.

We had discussed how we wanted to work the project. However, neither one of us knew or knows exactly what we want to focus on. We had decided that each time we went out we would go to a different neighborhood in the city. We decided to start with our own, Chandpole. We started right outside our front door. We both worked with our cameras and tripods to see what kind of results we were going to get. Then we continued.

We took our normal route to the edge of the neighborhood making some photographs along the way. We walked down the main street and went out to the shores of Lake Pichola. We walked a little ways up a side street and then back towards home.

Neither one of use feels like we got very successful photographs. I have a few that I like but who knows where the project will go and what I will decide to focus on. I hope you enjoy the few photographs I am showing here.
