My camera broke down on the 6th of December 2015.
I had taken a trip to the tiny village of Mima, in the north-eastern state of Nagaland - India. It was a beautiful morning and I had already shot a couple of rolls, when my camera suddenly and mysteriously decided that was enough.
A few days later, I got it delivered to Bombay, in the hope that someone there would be able to repaire it. A friend of mine recommended that I give it to Mr. Turkar - a well established repairer in the city. It took him a while to find the new parts which would replace the broken ones, as the camera hadn't been produced since 1995. He kept me informed of his progress and told me he'd finally found some replacement parts in Hong Kong, which meant he could start repairing the camera as soon as he received them. Two months later, Mr. Turkar sent the camera back to me. At which point I had travelled 5,402 kilometers away from where my camera had broken down, and was now in the town of Fort Kochi, in the south-western state of Kerala.
Below is the result of something that wasn't meant to be. I took these unaltered photographs during those two months / 4,761 kilometers away from Mima.
