Photography has always been one of my favorite mediums to work with. The possibilities that come with advanced technology is something that artists from the past can only dream about. It will be rather orthodox of an artist to say no to these modern mediums and tools. It is better for an artist to stay curious and keep learning. As Michelangelo said at the age of 87, “I’m still learning.” The key to creation is to keep the mind young. I love joining local arts communities and participate in workshops, this is how we all grow, not just as artists but also as individuals. I’ve always been an avid creator with a passion to explore the world with all its diversity. I enjoy traveling around and with a camera in my hands, it becomes very fun and easy to capture what I find on these little adventures. I found Photography to be an agreeable medium for me to capture my wanderlust.
“Cars, Mirrors of the Street” is a photographic compilation of my exploration into the world of reflections and urban sceneries. These photographic memoirs are my invitation to my viewers to see beyond what lies on the surface. If you’re a photography enthusiast like me, you’d love “Cars, mirrors of the street” as it delves deeper into the possibilities of the art of photography. I loved experimenting with the light, angles, and compositions of each frame. I always found the process to be more fascinating than the final results, you craft yourself as you’re crafting each piece.
This album sheds light and focuses on mesmerizing artistic evolution affected by the ever-changing technology, architecture, and lifestyle of people in this modern age. Each medium reflects its essence in the artwork, similarly, photography leaves its trails in the final art piece. The same subject would not produce the same results if the medium is different. Photography allows me to imitate the in-depth presentation that revolves around our cityscapes. We often fail to stop and appreciate such details hidden in plain sight. So, this is my homage to those brief moments of modern aesthetics frozen in time. The reflections of the buildings and bridges screening over cars seemed to make fascinating, unique, and abstract geometric patterns that compelled me to compile an album of my photographic series.
With the right use of specific angles and precise timings, I tried to capture dynamic, vibrant and lively photographs of the urban sceneries. The photographs depict the elegant character of the cars and the visual treat of their surroundings that reflect on them. The best part of this project is the uncertainty of the results. Each time I’d find something different in the reflections when working with such a subject, you can’t recreate the same results twice. The light won’t create the same angle or reflection again. Each striking pattern is unique in itself due to the impermanence of its existence. As long as the sun is putting a spotlight on those shinning hoods, these cars are my canvas.
