Photography is a search for beauty and the act of recording this beauty as a memory. In the future our present will only exist as a memory and a photograph can become a remembrance of time past. In “A La Recherche Du Temps Perdu”, the taste of a tea soaked petites madeleines “Shell shaped cookies” sparked a vivid recollection of lost time for Marcel Proust. In the same manner a photograph can evoke a poignant recollection of unremembered moments from our past.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
I am interested in documenting the contemporary essence of modern cities and the traditional heritage of towns and villages of India. I believe that the Indian sub continent is a land of great diversity and beauty. One would need several lifetimes to exhaust its infinite photographic possibilities.
My photography is my homage to my hometown.
