The exhibition Memoire Temporelle by Indian-born British photographer Kalpesh Lathigra is a journey within a journey: if “Homecoming,” in fact, is meant to be an exploration of the concept of ‘home,’ in the precarious balance between global interconnections and the need to re-find one’s place in the world, Lathigra’s is a journey, backwards, along the thread that binds him to his own ancestral culture. From England, where he was born, to India, where his parents come from. Along this trajectory – a return that has the flavor of discovery – Lathigra experiences an existential condition of hovering between now and then, between identity and heritage, that belongs to millions of second-generation immigrants around the world. In the markets, amidst the crowds and merchandise, among sacred cows and shirtless wrestlers, break dancers and pomegranate vendors, the photographer gathers fragments of the idea of India that he carries within himself and, at the same time, explores with new eyes a country to which he is bound by a complex and unbreakable relationship. Intimate, carnal, seductive, dusty, warm and colorful, the Indian metropolis generously reveals itself with its contradictions before his lens, always retaining part of its mystery: in the deep shadows, in the rustling of palm leaves, in the rustling of gold-rimmed saari, in the horizon in front of Bombay, where the line between the sky and the sea becomes uncertain and blurred, between the smog, the mist and the eyes veiled with melancholy.
