Dayanita Singh has developed her own photographic language, creating narrative horizons that remain open to any viewer or reader. The idea of the photograph as an all-embracing image of a ‘complete’, ‘valid’ story that has only to be understood and followed through has been set aside. Singh’s photographs are looking for viewers who will edit them, imaginatively, charging the images with possible stories relating with their own experiences, informing them with their own cultural and psychological cast of mind. The Go Away Closer series shows theatre interiors in Bombay and elsewhere, the surface of the water outside the Devigarh Fort Palace, a factory in Pune, a wedding, all the images real, all the images unreal. “To me that ambiguous relationship one has with love and loss and memory. Wanting, not wanting, not being able to let go. And then your reading which may have nothing to do with my saga.” (D.S.)
