Neurologist and psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud popularised the idea of the unconscious mind, which was later consolidated and further conceptualised by Lacan. On the lines of Lacanian readings, the objective of this project was to explore the reading of the visual language. The images portray the psychological conflicts from an urban middle class perspective, the resisting narratives and their realisation in everyday life. The premise of the study is in matters reflecting conformism in society through the gaze of the camera.
