Ok, quiz time for photography enthusiasts. Tell me what just happened here:
The first post on this blog happened on 10th July 2007! Already over six years old. Naturally, as it goes for everyone, a lot happens in six years. For one, I am 30 now, not 24. But less importantly Textdrive, my previous host for the website, has become non-responsive now. Infact, they moved my website to a different server and for some reason, they know best, decided to move only a part of my website. Fortunately, this was caught in time and I was able to make a backup. Unfortunately some of the photos were lost in the process and you might see broken photo links in some posts. I apologize for that, but what has happened, well, has happened. For now, I am moving to DreamHost, and hopefully the relationship will go on for ever.
With the move, I have done some changes to the website.
- The Theme: Is now minimalistic, flat and responsive. Have been wanting to have such a look for a long time and now am happy with the overall look.
- The Photoblog: Is gone! Although I will keep a hidden backup, but no longer I have been posting to pixelpost so it is not required anymore. All my photos will be hosted on Flickr from now on.
- New About Page: http://www.confusionart.com/about 🙂
Another joint photography experiment session with Priyanka. Simple setup. A speaker, a trash bag, some paint, a phone, a flash a camera. Some fun, some experimentation.
I wanted to eat of the fruit of all the trees in the garden of the world, and that I was going out into the world with that passion in my soul. And so, indeed, I went out, and so I lived. My only mistake was that I confined myself so exclusively to the trees of what seemed to me the sun-lit side of the garden, and shunned the other side for its shadow and its gloom…
…I have grown tired of the articulate utterances of men and things. The Mysical in Art, the Mystical in Life, the Mystical in Nature this is what I am looking for. It is absolute necessary for me to find it somewhere – De Profundis, Wilde
Got a chance to present something at the Open Show Bangalore. Open show is a international concept where they select artists to present their projects (for free) in an open public forum, where people interact, discuss and provide constructive criticism. The atmosphere is quite relaxed. Their basic motto is “visual omnivores wanted.” Reportage, documentary, commercial, fine art, abstract, historical, and others are all accepted. Below I present a set of 20 photos that I presented at the show on the theme “Darkness… as the Sun Sets“. Many of the photos you might have seen before but some are new. Overall it was a good experience, a first time for me to be in a public forum discussing the photos that I have shot.
