Gold has been very subjective in terms of whether it's fashionable or ostentatious. Thought it's something that's remarkably advertised, I wanted to capture its charm of being an heirloom. There are many brides who either love wearing gold and or have become very averse to it. For many years, it's still considered the most precious metal, not only because of its value but also how the yesteryear generations preserved it. It's considered as the promise of prosperity. Though there is a beauty in this metal, many brides also feel they are forced to wear it. In this photo story, I wanted to capture the story of a modern Indian bride who wants to settle for simplicity but later discovers that the gold she adorns is not only for the sake of family's pride, but also the fact she gets to be to wear something that has been passed down so many generations. Like it's said in the title, And She Became Gold, the bride finally felt complete when she respected her jewelry. Figuratively she became gold, someone precious in the eyes of all.
