“Off the carousel” is Girish Menon’s narrative of the events and challenges behind the making of twenty-one of his most treasured travel photographs. He talks about cameras and lenses, people and places, cultures that amaze us. Girish Menon is a professor of Photography at the University of Mumbai. “Off the carousel” is Girish Menon’s debut publication.
I had my first set of photo exhibitions in Bangalore and Mumbai back in 2004. The exhibition was titled “Carousel”. I think that back then, my life, my thoughts and my actions would always bring me back to where I had started – like a carousel does. Four of the photos in the book were part of those exhibitions but I think that there has been a change in the way I look at life and photography. I have gotten off the carousel. I encourage every photographer to print and exhibit photographs; however locally.
