The walls at the Art Gallery of Golden will be covered with a distinctly different flavour as the works of photographer Cheryl Goodwin will be on display until Jan. 8.

“Streets of India” is a show dedicated to two months of shooting which occurred in India and will feature stunning photos that show the culture and life of the people in the country.

“It is great for sure. I love to share my work. I was there for two months. I wanted to learn about the history, culture and people,” she said. “It was beyond my wildest dreams and expectations. I have been privileged enough to travel around the world.”

Though it took her a long time to go to India, Goodwin explained she knew before leaving, the time was right to finally take the long-awaited journey.

“I was ready to see it after hearing so much about how different it was. It surpassed even my grand expectations for how amazing a country it is,” she said.

Goodwin also explained the idea behind the show and the photos which will be on display.

“The theme is the streets of India. What I have done with that is to basically look in from the street side of the life. There are candid, random photos from all different aspects of life,” she said.

“What I found there, over anywhere else I have been, is the sheer rawness of life. Right from the beauty of life to the rawness of things like a femur bone on a beach. It is chaos but it is really brilliant.”

Goodwin explained that when she travels she tries to embrace the culture you go into for all that it is.

“It is hard to believe that I was in each of those spots. Sometimes when you take an image you almost have to pinch yourself to realize you were there.”

She added that it was easy to get around India partially because the people were spectacular and friendly.

“This is seen especially in the shots of the kids showing  the exuberance of joy and happiness of you being there to take photos,” she said.
