"Paul Kohl's photographs reflect all the nuances of rasa. Rasa is the Indian philosophical theory that determines aesthetic response within the arts: dance, music, painting, sculpture, film, photography can all be assessed and accessed through rasa.
In these photographs, Paul Kohl has invited the rasika to experience the images of India in this truth: not the process of exotic colorful 'othering', but thourgh the more subtle tap on the doors of perception, Paul has invited you into his view of the sensuality, absurdity, sadness, violence, heroics, fearsomeness, revulsion, marvelousness and peace of India."
