The element that binds together earth, fire, air and ether. That reflects and reveals the ever-changing processes of nature.. as well as the shifts of consciousness in its patterns and movements…
In Water, a series of abstract photographs, Mayank recollects his pictorial journey of many months: exploring urban, natural and rural lakes, observing and photographing trees, branches, leaves, shadows, the sun, sky and clouds as they merged with the surface of water into new rhythms. The images attempt to showcase the intimate beauty of natural water bodies some of which are fast disappearing from the surface of our planet.
This fine art photography series was displayed in solo shows at Triveni Kala Sangam, New Delhi (India) and Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur (India), in July 2009 and February 2010 respectively (details of the two shows can be found on the Shows page).
This series consists of 24 unique images, available as limited edition prints (Edition: 12). Print sizes: 20×15 inches or 16×12 inches for rectangular images and 16×16 inches or 12×12 inches for square images. Please note: these are natural photographs that have not been tweaked in any way.
