the exhibit

Shot in may 2018, I would consider this series a form based exploration of that period of time. Comprising of detail-oriented images of people from the city it gives the viewer some insight into their lives and cultures, yet leaves a lot of other things open to interpretation. A surface level view of things allows me to maintain a certain sense of detachment from my subjects and surroundings, thus focusing on that which matters to me the most – the design of a photograph. The textures, the patterns, the clothes, the accessories – all of these attribute to telling us a story about who these people are and where they come from. Providing a micro as well as macro view. Disjointed in a way, yet complete.

Why is the work in a state of Pause?

I don’t think I can ever really put an end to any of my projects. The open-endedness of their nature keeps them simultaneously in motion and stationary at the same time. The more I continue to explore and grow as an artist, the further my projects and subjects evolve over time. So no project is ever really over, it’s always a continuous, spontaneous and fluid process.

 

 

the artist

Linesh Desai

Linesh R Desai is a visual artist based out of Bombay. Having studied graphic design, he started by working at an advertising agency and eventually took up cinematography. He has been actively working in the field for the past 6 years. As a photographer, his practice stems from observing the world around him, rather than anything else. A daily exercise in “seeing”, his photographs are more visually driven rather than conceptually driven. For him, his work is more process oriented rather result oriented. More instinct, less thought; like shooting a film before writing a script.
