Jaipur series 2008

This series is made mostly from imagery of the Jantar Mantar in Jaipur, India, a celestial observatory built in the early 1700's. I focused on environmental art as a student at CCAC in Oakland, California. The two observatories in Delhi and Jaipur are better stuff than any contemporary pieces I have been to visit in America. The forms of these pure abstract tools that stand many stories high in the clear desert sun couldn't be more perfect to a modern photographer's eye.
