About the book:
A collaborative effort between the husband-and-wife artist duo Hari Katragadda and Shweta Upadhyay, 'I Will Be Looking At The Moon, But I'll Be Seeing You' is an ode to the in-betweens- the haunting memories of loves lost and loves past. It is especially fascinating for the viewer in the times we're facing today- unwillingly indoors and static- by eliciting an acute sense of attention towards who and what we share our living space with, and humbling ourselves towards their perception of us.
These spreads from their photobook highlight direct interventions on the surface of the images. For them, “the images become the background, almost the surface of a diary, on which feelings and thoughts are foregrounded and articulated.” Disrupting the materiality of the photographs, they also use paint and text on some of these photos to reflect erasure while stitching is used to repair the torn images.
