Go selected as Tamron 30 best Indian photographers in Tamron Challenge 2014
One day while going past a small house i noticed a bunch of potters carrying their equipments to a makeshift workshop. After further examination i realized that they are making clay Idols to celebrate Durga the mother goddess, so after taking the permission to explore and shoot the Idols here is the result. Durga means "the inaccessible" or "the invincible", is the most popular incarnation of Devi and one of the main forms of the Goddess Shakti in the Hindu pantheon, Durga is a Hindu concept of the Ultimate Shakti or Mahashakti, the ultimate power inherent in all Creation. This is especially prevalent in the Shakta denomination within Hinduism, which worships the Goddess Devi in all her manifestations. She is Goddess Lakshmi and Goddess Saraswati in her mild form; Goddess Kali and Goddess Chandi in her wrathful form. I've tried to capture the photographs to depict each and every emotions they wanted their Idols to represent
