Mj’s Wonder Women Series Feature #3: Ipshita Rajesh

I had a desire to photograph outdoors in urban spaces, classical dance forms that are usually performed on stage. The idea was at the back of my head for over a year. In the meantime I got acquainted with Ipshita. I had photographed her on a couple of occasions when she performed in Stockholm Musikaliska and the Stockholm Cultural Festival last year.
From the moment we first met for lunch at Cafe Schweizer at Gamla Stan, I felt an instant connection with her. Until that moment I had only seen her mesmerising performances. It was after meeting her, I discovered what made her performances so mesmerising. Ipshita’s passion for life and art is contagious. Her views on life and cultures always was thought-provoking and inspiring. The more I got to know her as a person over fika’s and a movie, I knew that this is a Wonder Woman whose story I need to share!

Because the major ingredient of your plan is not in your hands. It is beyond you, beyond human efforts. After all the planning, doing everything possible from your end, there comes a point, where all you can do is just wait in anticipation for that last piece of the puzzle to fit!

Mj’s Wonder Women Series Feature #2: Linda Ghaderi

Following a passion can be many things. For me it meant – stepping out of my comfort zone, trying something completely new, something I had little to no knowledge of, learn, explore a new culture, network, confront my fears, conquer it and keeping pushing forward. This process is constantly impacting me in numerous ways. One majorly being – healing!

I picked up my camera three months after my brother tragically passed. It was a period of deep pain, despair too intense to even describe. In fact, although time passes, the pain remains just the same. I had two choices in my hand – sulk in misery or sail over it. I chose the latter.
