Raja Raja

These are the final three images I chose for to represent the project.
Initially I created six images for the series, here are the originals. They go in order from left to right.
the story
"Raja" or "Raj" means King in Hindi, the language I grew up speaking in India. 
These are a series of images I manipulated of old Rajas in India expressing their homosexuality, or bisexuality. This was always a topic of ease for Indians until the British came and instilled homophobia in the society. I wanted to bring back a sweet touch of the olden days through this project.
