Rasa Yatra evokes the beauty of pilgrimage and explores the essence of devotion in Hindu culture through non-linear narrative. Rasa is Sanskrit for ‘juice’ or ‘taste’, and it can also mean ‘dance’. Yatra means ‘journey’, suggesting a joyful inner expedition, beyond the confines of routine and conceptual conventions. Rasa Yatra takes the viewer on a meditative journey from the majestic Himalayan mountains into the spiritual heart of India, Vrindavana. Photographed over a period of four years, Rasa Yatra becomes a pilgrimage rather than a mere depiction of one for the receptive viewer.
