Pottery Maker | Khuri | Jan 2012
I had been wanting to visit these skilled artisans (for them it is their livelihood) for the past few years. I did get a chance, although for a few brief hours but it got me excited. I enjoyed photographing them, trying to capture some aspect of their life that I was witness to. Someday I would like to do a small project on their lives. It got me thinking why is it that I (or you – the viewer) have this interest in the people whose lives we cannot fathom, whose lives are substantially distinct from ours. Are we searching for a connection, does it nourish us, does it fulfill something in our hearts and mind, we can’t pin point to ?
