Kashmiri Proverbs, in Japan
A book by Badaam founder and designer, Priyanka Kaul
Created in collaboration with Lindsay editor Beth Wilkinson and published by Oak Park Studio
Kashmiri Australian designer Priyanka Kaul works with photographer Noa Nguyen to weave together a vision of a unified Kashmir and Japanese culture through a series of stories set in Nagano. Each story includes snapshots of conversations they had with Noa’s friends and Priyanka’s family, creating a playful study of heritage and history. Published by Oak Park Studio and created in collaboration with Lindsay editor Beth Wilkinson, 'If One Uses Soft Words, Even Plain Rice Tastes Good' is a limited edition publication—a gentle and poetic piece of print that centres around a series of Kashmiri proverbs and expands our ideas of craft and liturature, cultural preservation and modernity.
