What I found lying on the streets of Patan (Nepal) was a random image, I do not know the person in the photograph but somehow the city was telling me that this was a memory belonging to a particular journey of someone.

Looking in from the surface, modern technologies such as X-rays have helped us peek into the human bodies, whatever comes under an X-ray is laid bare and it speaks for itself. Based on these two ideas of encounter and insight, a tiny portrait under an X-ray machine in a metaphorical sense helps unveil its inner reality.

A photo that was resting on the road comes alive to present Patan.

It says, look! This is me, you know me, just try to remember.
