CORONA: Christopher Tovo in his latest reportage series uncovers a sombre view of locals going about their everyday lives in Mumbai and Calcutta. While the hazy light Tovo captures creates an arcane intrigue into the lives of his subjects, the heavily polluted air also brings a palpable feeling of oppression. Thankfully Tovo invites the contrast of water via the redeeming cleansing rituals he catches by the Ganges, restoring a balance and respite to an otherwise grim post apocalyptic landscape. Golden horizon lines open like a wry smile inviting a deeper moment of calm under the gaze of an almighty sun. It’s in between each breath some say you can find yourself. Here in between chaos, Tovo equanimously depicts a beauty in the resilience of India.
