"'Sustenance' references the concept of ‘home’ and the intangible qualities associated with dwelling: familiarity and strangeness, belonging and migration, prolonged routine and repetition. The Sustenance series is a body of photographs examining complexities within the domestic environment. In these images, various species of birds came to feed at the apartment balcony of my former home in Framingham, Massachusetts. I documented their activities using a large-format camera. The project received considerable acclaim and was exhibited (selected by Martin Parr) at the Recontres d'Arles Photography Festival in 2004.  Since then, it has been exhibited extensively internationally." - Neeta Madahar
