Abstract/Artist Statement

Photographs in the “Punjabi´ series depict my close friend Navreena Sahota, who is deeply involved in her Punjabi culture. Punjabi is an ethnic group found between Pakistan and India which makes it an Indo-Aryan ethnic group of North India. This series allowed me to combine two of my interest, the celebration of different cultures and portrait photography.

In the series, Navreena is modeling her traditional Punjabi garb. Her dress and head garment emphasize the vibrant colors and beading of her culture. “Giddha” show Navreena in the moment of a dance known to her culture, the Giddha. The dance as well as the photograph, displays feminine grace and elegance. “Punjabi Prayer” focuses on Navreena’eyes. This photo gives you a sense of healing, hope and strength; three things found through prayer in her culture. Together, the photos introduce you to the beauty of the Punjabi culture.
