Dear 2021: Director’s Notes

Dear 2021: Director’s Notes March 13, 2022 Everything we see or hear or experience in any way at all is specific to us. We create a universe by perceiving it, so everything in the universe we perceive is specific to us. It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see. When you watch the short film ‘Dear 2021’ you will have an experience. Here are some notes from me aimed at highlighting my thought process and nuances of […]

Traveling, not Tourism

Traveling, not Tourism December 24, 2021 “Recently, photography has become almost as widely practiced an amusement as sex and dancing—which means that, like every mass art form, photography is not practiced by most people as an art. It is mainly a social rite, a defense against anxiety, and a tool of power.” – Susan Sontag After both the first wave and the second wave of the pandemic, a large number of people started traveling ‘again’ out of their habitual (read: […]

The Climb

The Climb March 16, 2021 The winter sky was dark and vengeful. The frigid wind was skin-seeping cold and it lashed us without mercy. Although, it carried a fragrance with it.

View From My Window

View From My Window September 5, 2020 Windows make up most of the south wall of my lobby. They are old-style, door length windows broken up into 2 panes. My house is on the third floor and faces another building. Before the lockdown, we used to go to office and return home only at night when it was dark outside. And weekends used to fly away in attending to errands and going out with friends. But during this lockdown, I […]

Reflections from my looking glass

Reflections from my looking glass July 26, 2020 ‘Self-portrait’ is an art-form where an artist self-consciously and self-critically explores their relationship with the medium in which they portray themselves. It gives us access to otherwise inaccessible and unexpected features of our own appearance in new and creatively significant ways. It requires not just self-examination but a presentation of the self to itself. A self-portrait is an attempt to place oneself into a more objective position towards oneself. It stimulates the […]

Every Landscape Tells A Story

Every Landscape Tells A Story July 16, 2020 We are all storytellers. Always have been. It exerts a power beyond the obvious; it creates a deep resonance. The two tools that I, personally, have used to tell my stories are photography and words. So, I thought why not put them together to describe the style of photography that defines me — Landscape Photography. I started photography when I was 16-years old. I still remember the thoughts that went behind the […]
