‘Ramya’ was commenced in 2002, when the photographer moved into Ramya’s house and used the camera as a means of communication. The the long-term project was resumed and completed after Rayma’s death in 2014, when Ramya’s private archive took Stavast to the remains of a former commune set by followers of the Bhagwan (Osho) in the no-man’s-land of Oregon, USA. This and many other stories together constitute Stavast’s biography of Ramya: a record of an unusual life. (KS/OS)
