And She Became Gold

An Indian bride's journey

And She Became Gold

Gold has been very subjective in terms of whether it’s fashionable or ostentatious. Thought it’s something that’s remarkably advertised, Jinson Abraham wanted to capture its charm of being an heirloom.

There are many brides who either love wearing gold and or have become very averse to it. For many years, it’s still considered the most precious metal, not only because of its value but also how the yesteryear generations preserved it. It’s considered as the promise of prosperity. Though there is a beauty in this metal, many brides also feel they are forced to wear it.

In this photo story, Jinson Abraham wanted to capture the story of a modern Indian bride who wanted to settle for simplicity but later discovered that the gold she adorned was not only for the sake of family’s pride, but also the fact she got to wear something that has been passed down to so many generations. In this series, the bride finally felt complete when she respected her jewellery. Figuratively she became gold, someone precious in the eyes of all.
