Gauri Gill - The Americans 2011

Gauri Gill: THE AMERICANS Gauri Gill: The Americans features a series of resonant photographs that explore the contemporary experiences of South Asian communities in the United States of America in a pre- and post-9/11 landscape. Developed during her travels from California to New York between 2000 and 2007, Gill presents an intimate look at the interior worlds, often populated by family and friends, documenting the tensions between the optimism of their times and the realities of class, race and cultural differences. Gill photographs the diverse South Asian-American communities and individuals engaged in varied activities between sites of labour and pleasure. The prevalence of culturally specific objects, colours, textures, attire, ornaments, artwork and religious icons in Gill s photographs reflect and celebrate the cultural roots of her subjects, both retaining their traditional signifiers of South Asian identity and merging within a larger American plurality.
