Hiraeth: (n.) A homesickness for a home to which you cannot return, a home which maybe never was; the nostalgia, the yearning, the grief for the lost places of your past

This is the journey of a girl returning home.

Home. A simple four letter word strong enough to invoke irrevocable feelings of longing, remembrance, comfort, laughter. Feelings of love, of joy, of belonging… the memories. The endless bundle of memories, forever lingering, never forgotten. A part of who she is. A pathway to where she came from. A place to always go back to. A solace.

A solace which may however, not exist. A solace which she finds only under the endless folds of her thoughts and imagination. A solace which can only be reached in the sanctity of her mind when her body lies inactive for several hours and her eyes are shut ever so peacefully. A solace of her dreams.

I got the chance to travel to the beautiful lands of Kerala to shoot this post. I was captivated and enchanted by the simplicity, beauty and magnificence of this place. We tried to capture the same through these pictures and film with the vision of a girl who is a traveler and a dreamer and how the place of her dreams ends up influencing her in the way she is, the way she dressed and the way she looks at life.
