The great Ansel Adams once quoted, "You don't take a photograph, you make it".
I guess Ram Shergill took that saying pretty seriously.
The late fashion connoisseur Isabella Blow once referred the globally renowned photographer Ram Shergill as "creative, amazing, and brilliant. All at once!" But it doesn't stop there.
From September 3 to 5, 2012, Sotheby's unveiled an exclusive showcase celebrating the work of Ram Shergill at the 'India Fantastique!' exhibition. The landmark fashion design portraits on display have been taken from a lavish two volume publication marking India's leading couturiers Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla's 25 year partnership, as captured exquisitely by Ram Shergill.
Sotheby's is an institution that is synonymous with housing the finest masterpieces available worldwide. To be exhibited in Sotheby's is the epitome of accomplishment for any artist, and with distinguished personalities such as Dame Judi Dench and screen legend Amitabh Bachchan attending an exclusive launch event for India Fantastique on the 5th September, Ram Shergill and his iconic work was the focus of a high-profile night that was set to stun the array of celebrities and influential guests in attendance.
