Elysium A photography project by Sandeep Dhopate

“All religions promote some kind of promised land of eternal happiness after death.

The idea must have been to be encourage compassion and respect for everything around so as to be deserving of this great reward. But somewhere along the line, we seemed to have lost the plot and started engaging in violent forceful behavior to gain entry into that Elysium. What made us believe in a myth so staunchly that we ignore the paradise we already are on and resort to destroying everything around us.

The elysian fields do exist and we are already there.” – Sandeep Dhopate

Based in Mumbai, India – Sandeep’s work explore the intersections between religion, spirituality and sexuality often questioning our current moral value system established through a mass blind acceptance of a generalized truth.

NB: Limited edition prints from Elysium are available at the Public House of Art and can be purchased here – https://publichouseofart.com/artists/sandeep-dhopate
