Family Ties

There is no deeper connection than blood. In India it is especially binding and often has the potential to restrict and inhibit one’s choices for young adults with its strict codes and expectations. Young children, however, are worshiped and indulged by their elders and older siblings.

Here is a series of photographs that explores the range of family ties across India.

About ninagrandiose

I am based in NYC but travel regularly to India and Mexico. Both of these countries feel like home. In India I scour the country in search of fabulous textiles to incorporate into my clothing designs. I sit back and let the ambiance and wonder of India seep into my consciousness so I can be inspired to write about what India is for me. I bring a limited number of people to India on exclusive and intimate tours of my favorite hangouts. In Mexico I take in the natural beauty that surrounds me and dance the night away. I constantly give thanks for all this and am pleased to share it all with you.

    Thanks for the appreciation and the comment. It is encouraging!

  3. There is something so beautiful about these family ties that we in the Western too often have lost. A love the intimacy of these photos.

    I believe that there is a correlation between the loss of our family ties in the West with our shrinking sense of humanity too; an undocumented tragedy.Thanks for your interest!
