India clicked candid
The ongoing photo exhibition Colours Of India curated by Delhi Photography Club wraps up Tuesday. The show that kick started on 12 July at India Habitat Centre displays photographs clicked by Kaynat Kazi. It is a narration of some of the rare arts getting even rarer each passing day. From colourful block prints, elaborate Mughal crafts to blue pottery and meenakari, Colors of India is more than just a story.
The ‘rani’ pink of mystical Rajasthan; the pastel shades of southern India; the joyous, bright hues of the northern frontier; and the bright colors of the east offer a insight into the blend of India’s history and modernism.
Kazi is a photographer who loves travelling to unfrequented places - from the heights of Ladakh, villages of Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Maharashtra - and captures diverse cultures that usually escape the regular eye.
Her special interest lies in capturing female expressions and candid photography. She believes that the moment the subject is conscious of being clicked, the original element is lost.
