Photography began as a simple hobby, capturing raw and direct moments in the streets. However, when the COVID-19 pandemic struck, everything changed. Street photography became challenging as people retreated indoors, and life took on a secretive and covert nature.
Driven by a desire to push the boundaries of artistic expression, I embarked on a journey of experimentation with my cameras. This exploration led to the creation of several remarkable series. In #CrossingBoundaries
, I found solace within the confines of my home during the lockdown. Using my cameras and prints, I ventured into a realm of multiple exposures and intricate layering, giving rise to something truly magical. In #Illusion
, I delved into the realm of film-soup techniques, resulting in enchanting and captivating visuals. And in #SavingFace
, a fortuitous accident led to an unexpected discovery. Unaware of an abnormality during the film insertion, I continued to capture images, only to uncover unique and mesmerising visuals during the development process.
Reflecting upon this body of work, a common thread emerged—the resemblance to paintings through the harmonious interplay of layers and the subtle blending of colours.
