Longing by Prabuddha Dasgupta

“Combine these two aspects of longing—the nonspecific and the retro­spective—and you realize that longing can exist entirely for its own sake, with no object in mind, as a kind of intensified nostalgia or eroticized elegy. In Prabuddha Dasgupta’s photographic series Longing there is a powerful suggestion of travel, of journeys that have merged into a single journey. There is evidence of arrival and departure, but the main sense is of transit, of looking back on what has been left, or forward to what is to come. The photographs are rarely in the moment. The present tense flickers and is gone.”
