Embracing a New Family

A new country. A new language. A new friend.

Artist Statement

This was created during the wedding ceremony of an Indian bride (me) and a Swiss groom. The little girl only speaks French and German, and I only speak English and Hindi, but here we see that we can connect through expressions and intrigue. The curiosity in the little girl's eyes when she sees an Indian bride for the first time—the different skin color, jewelry, clothes—makes her wonder. I believe it’s important to accept the choices and habits of those around you, and pick up what you like to shape your own self.
