If this exposition is to be defined in few words, then it’s just about photography. Seven city-based photographers have come together to display their clicked work, which give a distinct message. Presented by CAMERAun LIMITED, the group show is titled Soul Frames.
The exhibition features a spectrum of passionate comprehension clicked and edited using a variety of techniques. Meticulously chosen subject matter in each work throbs with an emotional intensity, thus providing a coherent visualisation of all the works together.
One of the photographers showcasing his collection is Ahmed Firoz. “Photography struck me as a hobby and slowly graduated to becoming my passion,” he says. Firoz is an economist by profession and enjoys clicking landscapes, portraits and macros, which will be exhibited in this show — his first public exposition. “Macros are photographs of small things. I have pictures of leaves, insects and more,” says Firoz.
Experimenting with lines is 25-year-old artist Ambika Sethi. “My work is all about lines and lines of hands in particular. These depict the past, present and future together, as lines of one’s hand can reveal that,” says Sethi. The photographs of Sethi, who is a visiting faculty at College of Art, Delhi, and is also taking a course in Palmistry, mainly picture finger prints and different gestures of hand in black and white hues.
Another photographer displaying his works at this exhibition proudly calls himself a colour blind photographer. “I don’t see colours! It’s just the abstractness in any object that pleases me,” says Hirak Kanti Dutta. He describes his work as an interpretation of internal desires in an abstract form. “I am a visual artist and a photographer. The main subject of my work is solitude and emotions,” says Dutta, of Creative pigments, a creative outlet.
Other photographers exhibiting here include Kabeer Lal, Rajesh Ramakrishnan, Satyen Bhadwar and Yatinder Kumar.
