Passage to India
"My fellow artist Akim Monet invited me to lunch at his home in NYC. As I entered his dining room, I was immediately struck by several large scale photographs of India. Their saturated colors emanating ethereal light beckoned me to look closer. I felt the spirituality of India, standing there with the afternoon light streaming through the windows, highlighting the details in Monet's images. The solarized effect of the print adds to the sense of otherworldliness and reminds me of an x-ray-- allowing the viewer a view within and an understanding of a Passage to India.
Akim Monet is a true visionary in more ways than one."
