An avid traveller with a sensitive eye, Uday’s life in Mumbai has attracted him to the migratory settlements rampant in every spatially available part of the city. These are the people that crowd the city, are the ground working masses that come out and crawl back to their close knit settlements. To Uday’s artist’s eye, they seem like ants coming out of their anthills. His lens has captured the beauty of human sustainability, our capacity to outlive like any other species in nature. With bright blue, an Indian red and the stark grey, the summer light shines in the micro homes; life goes on, makes us gasp and admire the aesthetics of modern living.
