Kochi, southern India, monsoon season: For months the sun is hidden and the city veiled in a clammy, milky grey haze. Heavy rains flood streets and public spaces and force people inside even though living spaces are crowded and the heat is breathtaking. The pictures of this series focus on the life and living conditions in the city of Kochi during these monsoon months.
With Inside Out India I continue my work on »Living Cities - inner and outer spaces« that I began in Hanoi, Vietnam and Arkhangelsk, Russia. Climate and social circumstances define the living situations and lead to a very diverse interplay between private and public. - André Lützen
