I was commissioned to photograph Siddharth Sanghvi, an Indian prodigy and extremely well known author of our times for Canteen Magazine. Sanghvi has been compared to Salman Rushdie and Vikram Seth in his writing styles, especially for using settings of magical realism, and themes such as karma, love and sexuality extensively in his very applauded book The Last Song of Dusk. Here are a few of my favorite images from the shoot. Above all, he was a delight to work with and a great person to brainstorm about life, love and image making.
My image, “Hope” is soon to be a part of the Wall Space Gallery page. The Wall Space gallery has organized an online limited edition print sale by various artists to support Japan and it’s current Tsunami and Earthquake struck condition.
Please visit the link and donate. All images are a signed and at limited edition of ten priced humbly at $50. The print I have donated is below and will be soon to appear on the Wall Space’s website. In the mean time if you would like to support the cause, please spread the word by sharing the information on social networks. Should you have any questions, please get in touch with me. Thank you to Crista Dix for putting this together.
On the day I went to Bada Bagh, I met a very warm family who allowed me to make some images of them with the 4×5. The camera seemed to gain their interest, they asked me a lot of questions about the format; Some of them included if this camera made movies and if this meant they would appear on the television the next day.
