When it comes to making images, I’m equally passionate about people and places as subjects. THE SOUL IN THE SPACE is my second photographic show and is both, more abstract and more personal. The focus is on details of architecture shot in three locations that connect with my own biography: Jodhpur (the city of my birth), Chandigarh (the only city designed by Le Corbusier and where I was raised and spent some of my best years), and Dufftown in Scotland (where I first discovered architectural photography during an artist’s residency at the Glenfiddich Distillery). In this show, I chose to concentrate on mass, line and texture in both black & white and colour works, composing starkly dynamic scenarios that approximate a painterly aesthetic but also unmoor the subject from its original context. My palette is purposefully reductive yet highly sumptuous, relishing the much to be discovered in stone, metal and concrete, three materials that I associate with greatly.
The show is currently on exhibit at ID 2017 (India Design) organised by Elle Decor in Delhi. The selection of prints on view range from large-scale blow-ups that communicate a monumental grandeur to sets of smaller prints that are grouped together, creating syncopated rhythms.
If in Delhi, do drop by… It’s on till the 19th of February.
