Meghalaya ‘The Abode of the Clouds’ is the wettest place on earth. Its capital Shillong was a Hill Station and the capital of Assam under the British Raj. The book both physically & metaphorically embodies seeing through the mist of time. The archival images on tracing paper are of ephemera & photos brought back from India by my father from WW2 and mist the ‘present day images of Meghalaya’ produced from drawings I made on location.
