Tidal Art is fascinating. A unique canvas that exits only for a moment before nature takes a new brush and applies a new colour. The slow recession of water as this weir dried out revealed a canvas with texture and movement that I likened to gazing down on chocolate coral heads through the shallow, crystal clear waters of a tropical lagoon. The surfboard serves as the conduit to support the illusion suggesting a liquid landscape in the place of bare parched earth and life in abundance where none exists.

Invented in the 12th century, the ancient art of Mallakhamp is a traditional sport originating on the Indian subcontinent. The gymnasts perform aerial yoga poses and wrestling grips in concert with a vertical stationary pole .... the Mallakhamp. I photographed these artists as they developed a routine in readiness for a scene from a period film I was shooting in India in 2011.
