Crossing Boundaries – Finding the Moment, is a journey towards sharing photographs taken during the photographer’s
travels. Travel involves crossing physical boundaries which in turn allows other boundaries to be crossed
through images captured by the camera.

Joy, Hope Struggle, Anxiety, Sadness and other emotions reflected on the images of the human face
allow our curiosity to rise.

The past grandeur of cities, desolate streets which were once the arteries of vibrant economies, angst
demonstrated on urban walls, sculpture of a woman in chains, all such images were captured as they
came. The viewer interprets the images in his or her own way and may start questioning the cause of
change, the relevance of messages displayed on the graffiti, and even wonder why we ever needed to
put other human beings in chains.

Throughout history photographs have changed our minds and helped shape a better world – maybe
only for a short while.

I believe that to bring about an intentional change there has to be a continuous dialogue with viewers.
This dialogue gives rise to a better understanding of the world around us. The image of a sad face or an
old ruin or a monument could trigger questions around the social, political, economic environment of a
place, of an individual, or of a situation which may lead to crossing many boundaries and possibly more
questions with more answers. And that is the intent. — Dipankar Mukherjee
