Mollywood on walls and shutters

First began shooting Mollywood’s hand painted movie stars couple of years ago for fun! But in the last one year fun turned fad, when happen to see more than 4 – 5 big hand painted hoardings being removed to be replaced by huge flex boards right in front of my eyes. First in this series …

A white storm!

First big snow of my life, still unaware that my fingers could freeze, feet could damp through cracked shoes! I ran out to my little empty town early morning, all that I remember is the excitement of seeing a white cover so large, thick and puffy! Took the Lilliput train to where the white cover …

One man, many walls..

If walls and shutters of Kerala could speak their mind, its undisputably this man, Mohanlal.
