Marking the first UK solo presentation of FOAM Talent 2017 winner, Vasantha Yogananthan (b.1985, France), A Myth of Two Souls (2013-2019) is an ambitious ongoing body of work inspired by the Indian legend of The Ramayana.

About

Familiar with the epic fable from a young age, having been read it by his Sri Lankan father, Vasantha traces a journey from north to south India, capturing the impact and pervasiveness of this omnipresent cultural myth on everyday Indian life.

Working exclusively in analogue, using large or medium format cameras that intentionally slow down the creative process, Vasantha’s projects are generally developed over long periods of time and harness a distinctive colour palette based on natural light. A Myth of Two Souls continues his artistic and philosophical concerns. Juxtaposing colour and hand-painted photography, the series interweaves fictional and historical stories, old and new traditions and offers a lyrical photographic reimagining of a classic tale and sits somewhere between documentary, fiction, mythology and reality
