A good friend Shona Henderson ask me which piece in the ‘Art of Travel, India’ I liked the best. Which I answered ‘Shop Boxes.’ Unfortunately I couldn’t entirely share with her why I thought it was the best, as the images in this Blog don’t give you the opportunity to look up close to the images and explore the deep individualism of each image. So I though, as I explain to her, I would write some notes on my favourite piece and why.

Art of Travel, Part 1: India – Shop Boxes

'The Art of Travel, Part 1 India'

'The Art of Travel, Part 1 India'

These Shop Boxes are spread everywhere throughout India, so much so you almost don’t see them. They just blend in with the crowded chaos of the Indian landscape. Shop Boxes though are a brilliant idea. A steal or wooden cupboard like enclosure in which people have a shop. ‘A Shop in a Box.’ They save space in a crowded environment, are cost efficient, easily lock up at night and are portable to move with the changing times.

I once interviewed a Mechanical Shop box owner who told my friend who translated to me that every year or so he moves a couple of kilometres up the large road he is on as they keep widening the road and taking up his spot/post.

Types of shops in the boxes range from mechanic shops containing a compressor and many large hung tools, a tailor shop where the owner sits with his sewing machine each day as the clothes to work on are hung up and draped all around the walls of his box, a shoe shop featuring a crowed display if shoes lining the boxes walls with a father and son selling to the passers by, pan and cigarette shops where the owner dishes out pan to regularly visiting auto drivers and boasts that his is the best pan in town, an artists studio where you can sit and have your portrait painted, the morning juice stall, the lunch time chat & food stall and the list just continues and continues.

I love this image as it invites you to explore the many environments in these boxes or how empty and alone they look when they are shut up. Once again exemplifying the environmental changes of mans markings. They are a Box, a quiet deserted box, absent from live until they are opened up and brought to life by their owner.

Twitter Tshirts

So new discovery of Interest. Twitter has a competition at twitter.threadless.com where you can submit tweets to be printed on a T-Shirt. And Twitterers vote on the winning one. Its cool and creative and something to do in your spare time 🙂
I’ve submitted ‘I tweet, therefore I am’ & ‘If its not on Twitter, it never Happened.’
The first on is a modern day Descartes hehe and the second is a play on the photography theory of if you never photographed it you never really know if it happened 🙂
You can vote for me at the following two links: http://thrdl.es/~/b3W http://thrdl.es/~/b3J
