A Life of its Own - Visuals by Leena Kejriwal
In this series Leena Kejriwal captures the magic of still life. Her eye dwells, in the present suite of photographs, on objects selected from the margins of urban life; on details that form part of the everyday life of the thoroughfares, the back alleys, and the quiet if neglected courtyards that are sometimes inset surprisingly into the heart of neighbourhoods otherwise fraught with the anxiety of survival. In this series of photographs the still life becomes, an occasion to celebrate the vibrancy of the inanimate object, the spirit that quickens even the most ordinary and inconspicuous of things, the life of the overlooked items in the inventory of the real.
