Keralan post-colonial churches
After falling in love with the Keralan Cinema book by Haubitz and Zouche i was pretty excited at the thought of finding some of the cinemas and churches they’ve photographed. Some of my favorites are here. I didn’t get to photograph the cinemas as the 40 degree heat in Kochi limited the amount of walking but on our way to Munnar and while we were there i found these 3 beauties. If i had driven in India i think i would of spent the entire time finding more of these churches.
This might be my favorite, i was totally painted pink before the white it is now. I love the hands below the stars.

Months before travelling to Kerala i made a small collection of collages which featured the architectural details of Keralan buildings. 3 of the collages are new available to buy as greetings cards.
I love how much is going on here, the fake stone, the mosaic of triangles, the candle, the peach and orange canopy.
