My relationship with my hair has always been strained. I started greying in school. By the time I was in college I began to colour my hair with henna that resulted in a rich auburn tinge. Sometimes I even used black or dark brown hair dye. Then in my early twenties I had an aesthetic revelation. And I stopped using colour in my hair. Looking back I think it was an attempt to recognize and appreciate the real me, as I was evolving somewhat precociously through a spectrum of greys. Now I am in my early forties and have gone more or less silver. Recently while I was sitting in my studio I thought I'd 'colorize' my hair again and sort of relive a growing-up strangeness. And so I gave myself a hair colour not normally associated with human hair.

This phrase turned inside my head yesterday and the more I thought about it the more profoundly I felt its truth. The picture is from Buddha Park in Ravangla in Sikkim where I'd recently gone for a shoot
