Sibling Collaboration in Kolkata, India

While in Kolkata, India to visit my parents, I was able to take some time to photograph a residential project that my youngest brother's firm Internal Affairs, a leading interior design organization in the region, just recently completed. The two-level residence occupies the top 22nd and 23rd floors of one of the five towers of Tata Housing's Eden Court luxury complex in New-Town, Kolkata. Though my brother is an interior designer and I a photographer specializing in architectural interiors and exteriors, we never had an opportunity to collaborate on a photo shoot for one his designed spaces. The timing of my short India visits and the completion of one of his projects never seemed to align well. So when this opportunity came about we both knew we had to make it happen.

It was fun to photograph this space my brother designed where he combined elements of traditional Indian with a modern flair to create an airy, naturally lit, open and a functionally elegant space.

Hope this is the first of many more such sibling collaborations to come.
