Walk through many doorways in India. 


As a necessary and most basic architectural element throughout the world, doors separate and define space, facilitating passage between interior and exterior, private and public, sacred and secular. Rather than simply serving utilitarian purposes, they illustrate the boundaries of communication and culture of everyday living and embodies the characteristics of space and people's sensitivities. The doors demonstrate not only incredible craftsmanship and aesthetics, but reveal information about their owners and the building type.

Armed with my camera, I traveled through narrow winding streets in age-old Indian towns and villages—characterized by their mixed land-use—documenting the inherent relationship between architectural tradition, culture, and people.
