Influential Indian Photographer Dayanita Singh on Photo Books at an Artist Talk hosted by Delhi Photo Festival.
When I go out into the city I have no plan. I walk down one street, and when I am drawn to turn the corner into another.
My Ambitions are probably quite modest, but i think if you can resonate with a few people, just touch a few people, if they recognize something in your work, I think it’s worthwhile.
In Photography, editing is of utmost importance, but often overlooked in today’s immediate world. It defines who you are as a photographer and it begins in the viewfinder.
Luck – or perhaps serendipity – plays a big role… But you never know what is going to happen. And what is most exciting is when the utterly unexpected happens.
Quote: As with Life, it’s not how long you have photographed, it’s how intense.
Often times we see a wonderful photograph scarred by a badly written caption or title. Let the photograph emote, and it should if you photograph with passion and emotion, and let the caption/title text be a simple description or statement of facts. Simplicity works, always will – Feel before you shoot, think before you write that caption.
