Manjari Sharma

"The bathroom, formerly a beauty parlour, now became a confessional and I the hair dresser. Many of my subjects shared intimate details of their life with me and every new person in the shower became a brand new allegory. With every new visit I had a new protagonist; A new plot and a new parable of hurt and heroic that came undone under that shower - My Shower. I felt a personal mythology was being shared, an independent study that I got addicted to."

Manjari Sharma is a Mumbai-born photographer with some pretty big accolades under her belt. I like her shower series, because it seems to be one scenario where nude subjects feel more at ease than in many others.
