I’ve come to Kolkata four times, staying for over a year around 2012 to work on a film. Even though the city can be very chaotic, I think of it as almost silent, as though parts of it died awhile ago and are quietly dreaming themselves into the present. My neighbor said about the crows, who go from kitchen to kitchen asking at the windows, that a negative assessment by a crow of ones household should be rigorously avoided.

These photos were taken in 2012, in Kolkata, India, digitally.
