A Media Studies alumna’s latest project was recently featured on one of National Public Radio’s (NPR) blogs.
The Picture Show interviewed Manjari Sharma (CCAD 2004) about Darshan, her project to photographically recreate nine classical images of Hindu gods and goddesses.
The blog article explains that Sharma plans to build every detail of each photograph by hand, which involves set and prop builders, makeup artists, painters, carpenters and jewelry experts. And when everything finally is in place, Sharma captures the scene with a large-format film camera.
