The street is interesting playground to freeze the moment where the miscellany of subject blended with fine sense of humour continuously skates its steps. The colourful wall, art of painting and the living or non-living subject co-mix in such way and creates an interesting composition of decisive moment. The greater compositions with a clinch of humorous sense obviously spills out a magical moment until the photographer’s eye freezes the moment and viewer’s eye feels astonished within the frame.
Once, if the language is forgotten and alphabet is wiped out, the only communicating means left is eye. This window carries millions of stories of human beings that separate them from all other living creatures of nature. Sometimes the non-living eye that exists in the two-dimensional medium surprisingly creates a moment of rib-tickling comics with other subject of the frames. This interesting aspect of blending art and pragmatism makes me more inclined to this series work. There are always a passive interpretations or messages of relevant social issues that is the soul of every photograph.
The photographs may be very funny with a simple observation; but I tried to depict a fine wavelength of some social imbalances reflecting either increasing female abuses or movement for democratic right on gender equality or the battle of good and evil through old religious practices.
I tried to capture a title of the moments that portrays the strength of friendship in our war-mourned world or intense trust in the wishes from the Almighty and how it is still the electric power in our super technical non-equilibrated society that enlighten each corner of the soil.
I captured one frame just to highlight the message that our performance is the only shadow of our existence; not the strength of physical power or political conductance. Some photographs were captured in keeping with the thought of third eye; that may be our destiny or time, which always analyses our steps with a strong surveillance.
I started this work when one frame made me think about this project and continued for about three years. The photographs were captured in different locations and different events including the streets of India. Each time, whenever or wherever, I captured the frames in course of this project, the photographs made me astonished deeply – to feel that surprises in life is an eternal truth; which makes you smile truly.
While continuing this project, the toughest work was the prediction of the situations or weaving of the story in each photograph while keeping an underlying meaning. The experiences from this project, which resources myself, is that not only the subject is important in street; but perception that a meaningful frame should be resonated with each click. The story of this interaction of eye from two-dimensions with the world of three-dimensions not only carries the seven tunes of humour but also the flavours of the street photography with an enjoyable sensation.
