‘The Temple in the Sea’ looks at ritual and religious practice at a well-known Hindu shrine and its associated cremation grounds in Central Trinidad. Documenting the daily life of the Temple, and those that maintain and worship at it, it seeks to communicate an experience of the place using the 5 elements (earth, water, wind, fire and ether) as a symbolic compass.
