I have been born and brought up in the Northern part of West Bengal, a district named Malda. Since my childhood, I have always known and have been told that one of the most important elements of our culture and heritage, along with the taste and food habits, is authentic Bengali sweets. These sweets which I have known since my childhood have different forms, shapes, tastes and colours. I have always wondered how these different types of sweets have evolved with time; who are the main creators of these sweets and what is the relation between us and sweets and its history. I am also interested in understanding the relationship of forms, colours and textures with these eatables.This has made me interested in understanding the visual forms of sugar; sweet products and its by products. Coming from an architectural background, I started seeing similarity between sugar, added sugar products and architecture or the construction materials and a deep philosophical match in its forms, patterns and textures. This photobook is an approach to understand the conceptual similarities and differences between them.
