Bombay-born, Brooklyn-based photographer Azhar Chougle explores “alienation, frustration and intrigue” in this haunting, minimalist photo series titled, ‘Unfamiliar Moments Across The Atlantic.’
The photographs are a reflection of Azhar Chougle’s reaction and interaction with American culture. The series seems to capture some fleeting yet omnipresent aspect of life in the United States. That may sound paradoxical, but the American mentality is often spoken of as one of immediate satisfaction. The object of one’s desires is often gone as quickly as it came, soon to be replaced by yet another small pleasure.
Azhar Chougle’s pieces provoke as much thought in their viewers as they reflect in the photographer.
