Caught in a frame
A photographer - Greek photo meaning ‘light’, and graphê, meaning ‘drawing, writing’, together meaning ‘drawing with light’ is a person who takes photographs. The definitions of amateur and professional, in the context of photography, are not entirely categorical.

A professional photographer is likely to take photographs to make money, through the display, sale or use of those photographs, while an amateur photographer may take photographs for pleasure and to record an event, emotion, place, as a person without a monetary motivation, defines Wikipedia.

Photographers are also categorised based on the subjects they photograph. Some photographers explore subjects typical of paintings such as landscape, still life, and portraiture.

Other photographers specialise in subjects unique to photography, including street photography, documentary photography, fashion photography, wedding photography, war photography, photojournalism, aviation photography and commercial photography.

But in a world where almost every other person has an expensive camera at his or her disposal, everyone claims or aspires to be a photographer. But like it is with all forms of art - the vision separates amateurs from the actual connoisseurs. The Capital will have a chance to witness the works of one such connoisseur soon. Meet Neeraj Khorana.

Khorana brings to you the World Photography Series, a collection of photographs across subject lines and world cultures; with series ranging from bars, streets, legs, black and white, bicycles, graffiti, et al - photographs showcasing regions such as the French Quebec Province in Canada, Holland, India, Turkey, New York City, the Rhone Valley region in France and more on canvas and paper.

And not just this, the artiste has put together a vibrant collection of photographs, but deep thought has gone into dressing up each picture through a wide range of high quality and unusual mounts and frames.
