With a view to promote the ‘Art’ of photography, Ojas Art, has put together some of the best images that have been captured by the magic lens of renowned photographer, Raghu Rai. Ojas Art is increasingly becoming a name synonymous with presenting innovative approaches to Indian art.
In his half a century career as a photographer Raghu Rai has won numerous national and international accolades. The exhibition, Picturing Time focuses on the most creative images from his stellar career. The images have been especially handpicked to suit the artistic palate of the Indian Art Connoisseur.
50 images, mark 50 years of the master photographer‘s work, the exhibition includes Rai’s trademark black and white, and coloured ones. The images on display at the exhibition are spanning across various subjects — from breathtaking stills capturing the grain of both traditional and contemporary India, there are city-specific stills on display too; images through which Rai capture the rich tapestry, the very DNA, which defines India.
“In the last fifty years, photography has seen a paradigm shift. But the purpose remains the same, to capture an evocative moment that reflects the essence of time as this is the visual history of tomorrow,” said Raghu Rai.
The exhibition is accompanied by an eponymous 192-page publication by Aleph Book Company, capturing 50 years of exceptional images and the stories behind them. This book is available at the exhibition, which showcased Rai’s iconic images, from an early morning view of the Yamuna to Jantar Mantar in the afternoon and a silent Qutab Minar, promising to be a visual treat for art lovers and collectors alike. “The mastero, Raghu Rai completing 50 years as a photographer is historic. To be presenting an exhibition to celebrate this milestone is exceptional for the gallery,” Anubhav Nath, Ojas Art
