IMAGE.GEOMETRY.GRID


Photography is inexorable. We are exposed to more ranges of images than ever before. Post-modern perception and visual culture are increasingly perpendicular. Majority of images we come across have a sense of perpendicularity. From the beginning of image making, the horizon of the landscape has been dictating the geometry of the images. Human made objects-architecture took the perpendicular space over the horizon. This series of photographs of 18th century Jaipur architecture plays around with the usual geometry of architectural photography. Today the mobile phones have an inbuilt on-screen grid that unconsciously control the geometry of the photographs. These images are results of my alignment and non-alignment actions with the grid. The striking colors of the architecture makes the images look like hard-edge geometric painting.
