Many years ago, I was in India when I came upon the over-sized book, Women, by photographer Prabudda Das Gupta. The pages were filled with black and white photographs, soft focus and mysterious. Many of the images were erotic. Blushing, I bought the book hurriedly, and it has traveled with me ever since: on my coffee table, on my nightstand, in the guestroom.
While in Kenya, I bought items in multiples, thinking that they might add special touches to the guesthouses. A number of my purchases were made out of bone and wood -- their natural patterns and organic beauty speaking to me. Strangely, I was compelled to photograph them against the images of Das Gupta. I like the contrasts that were created. But what do you think?
Polka dotted bone salt and pepper shakers. Love these.
