Whilst in Jaipur this December, me and a cat called Ganjesh Meow Tikam Chand and Surendar by the side of the road outside of Hawamahal who had a camera from the 1860's as royal photographer of the palace.  His great grandfather had brought this camera down from Germany in the 
1860s and he proudly showed off an old Carl Zeiss lens.

what was most incredible though was that this camera transported you back to the 1800's too.
I became my own ancestor. 

and it was Magic.
I saw myself as a ghost, with Jugular Bean
as starcrossed lovers like pressed rose petals.

As sisters between yellowed pages.

with family portraits that will hang on my walls for generations to come.

I'm going to start finding ways to work on a project with this man and him 200 year old camera,
but in the meantime - if you're ever in Jaipur
go down to Hawamahal and ask for the man with the ancient camera.
he sits on the side of the road clicking pictures of happy tourists and taking us back into a softer world.
