Artist Statement :
Art, for me, has always been an escape from the world of economics. While I began my
journey as an artist with "Water colors"; in the early eighties the medium changed to "Film"
and by the turn of the century to "Digital".
Photography gave me an entire new medium to experiment, explore life’s offerings, its colors
and moods. It took my life by storm. It made me forget my troubles, helped me retain my
sanity and completely enriched my life.
Light can play such brilliant tricks on our eyes. A little light falling on an object, brings it to
life by playing around with the lines, shape, texture and color. It creates a perfect drama.
Although awe-inspiring, I always felt that this brilliant drama that the light creates is so short
lived. It was then that I got inspired to use photography to capture this "Moment of Truth"
and share it with all. I could capture this brilliant drama from behind my lens forever.
As it is always believed, joy multiplies on sharing; and today I use this opportunity to share
my works - my passion.
They say, beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. So, what you see here today, is beauty, from
my point of view. I hope you enjoy seeing my pictures as much as I loved capturing these
