The story behind…
What comes first, the monkey or the man? The artist calls upon Darwin’s theory of evolution through the title of this photograph where we are reminded that the monkey did in fact come first. (Did you get the right answer?). Taken at the Rock Temples of Badami the monkey seems to be on top of the world, all seeing and all knowing, compared to the clueless security guard below. The monkey also represents Hanuman, the monkey god, making us call into question if science and religion can co-exist?
This analogue photograph is one of the six part series of tranquil black and white scenes that Prarthana Modi has captured as part of The Awesome collection.

About Prarthana Modi:
Prarthana Modi (1978, India) is a photographer based in New Delhi. If you are tired of the noise, of the colourful neon lights, of the flatscreens and the 3d movies, if you are at the point of ripping your clothes off, growing a long beard, and run back to nature to live off roots and berries...stop for a moment. Relax. Let yourself be charmed by the timeless and moving images that Prarthana Modi captures with her elegant black and white. Then, if you still want to escape civilization, we will be happy to drop you in a gas station on a highway of your choice.
