B.V.S.P school and Making of Lord Ganesha

December 9, 2011

Hello Readers,

Here are some images on the making of Lord Ganesha followed by a video of Lord Ganesha set. The video was filmed by Roberto Farruggio who shadowed me in India and it was edited by Lily Huang. All images behind the scenes below were also photographed by Roberto Farruggio and by a few are by Varun Sathe, a talented student of Bhartiya Vidya Peeth School of Photography.

My New York Times Article links specifically mentions Bhartiya Vidya Peeth school of Photography in Pune. Also known as B.V.S.P.
B.V.S.P’s students and instructors were pro active in taking part in the Darshan project, Ashish Gurbani formerly assisted me on the making of Maa Laxmi, and Mukul Anand, Varun Sathe, Urmit Talavia and Cheryl Zorini Bhorania to name a few were frequenters on the set working towards making Darshan a success.

B.V.S.P’s role in this process was integral and they were true agents of art. By offering their school’s resources, their premises and equipment  as well as their students, BVSP truly promoted collaboration. I would take a moment to look into the school and what it offers. Rajan Chaughule, president and dean at B.V.S.P in specific was a facilitator in every way he could be for the project. I also want to specifically thank Siddhartha Mudaliar, an instructor at B.V.S.P whose extra set of eyes on the set were much appreciated.

Siddharth Sanghvi

March 29, 2011

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.

Bada Bagh, Jaisalmer, Rajasthan

March 12, 2011

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.
