“RIVER B(L)ACK : from the documentation of Sabarmati, from Vasna Barrage”

"I often take pictures of the water in the rivers Vishwamitri, Sabarmati, and Mahi Sagar, especially the water surface. During my documentation, I recorded that the colors change in different seasons and locations due to various reasons, including untreated effluents such as sewage disposal, chemicals, dye disposal, soil colors of different locations, and the color of the sky at different times of the day. This gave me the idea to recreate the scenes as they appear, like a landscape or waterscape.

This time, the color is BLACK." - Mrugen Rathod
