The Monomyth

Moving forward? What is that? Does moving forward signify forgetting all that we leave back? I guess not.

Moving forward is a journey of healing while selectively carrying all the good parts. It doesn't matter what "vehicle" you choose for this journey, what's important is you are not standing still.

Through this snap, I wanted to send a message to all those broken hearts who are struggling with this stagnation in life. You have to stop at standing points but it's momentary because life will only be more beautiful when you explore new horizons. So many people, in so many ways, are broken but they still are living, because the art of life lies in being alive fully.

On a cold winter morning, the man on the cycle is struggling; the man in the other vehicle is also doing his part of the job. Now, you must wonder what I am hinting at. It’s simple... I am trying to say that your life is not only yours. Your life is shared territory amongst many hearts and minds. On this cold morning, this auto driver will pick a passenger who will be thankful for him to come by. The cycle man will collect jaggery and sell it which later will bring happiness to so many people who will savour its sweetness. Will they thank him? No, not in person. But somewhere this man will be a reason and part of their happiness and that's the message I want to share.

Presenting “The Monomyth” from “Amour de Grey”.

I named it after Joseph Campbell’s famous work “The Monomyth” or “The Hero’s Journey” as it examines the stages of the hero who goes on an adventure, faces a crisis and wins, and then returns victorious.

What I actually want to establish with this title is that you are not alone... you are in a continuous development on your own, and that you are someone's reason to be happy today and for days to come and this journey is beautiful. Just enjoy it and when you will look back you will find your path was adorned with small crowned jewels of your own.

I am a multidisciplinary photographer from India. I have been doing photography as a passion for the last 6/7 years. Though I started my journey by clicking streets and people’s life, I have been exploring different genres over time like travel, landscape, portrait & wildlife photography. My style of photography mostly tends to create minimalistic and environmental images. My images are featured in pages like Incredible India, Tripoto Community, Outlook Traveler, Street Photography International, BBC News Hindi etc. I got into the NFT space in January, 2022 and am exploring the space as an NFT Artist now.
