THE chair talks to you through its form. It asks you to lean back a little further and relax your shoulders, or to sit up straight and listen to those around you with fond, rapt attention. The chair is the quiet, contemplative extra party member at every dining-out experience.
Charvi Shrimali observes the hidden lives of chairs through her photo series of eateries across different cities in India. Her photographs document spaces that are built for bustle and social interaction in rare moments of stillness.
