  • Catalogue Essay

    "Akim Monet's photographs here rendered the classical architecture and sculpture of India visceral and molten. . . . Monet used his negatives as positive images, retaining the inversion of forms while infusing them with painterly hues, and in so doing, creating an otherworldly headiness. . . . Cave cathedral, a view of an intimate temple carved within a cave where Buddha is believed to have rested, is the color of burning-hot embers, lending literal radiance to a mystical site" (H. M. Sheets, "New York Reviews", ARTnews, October 2002).
