Some of Anil Purohit’s photographs look like paintings.
About his creative works, he says: “An image lives on in the eternity it promises the viewer, often concealing the meaning in layers of suspense, intrique, promise or plain ordinariness.
“I sought to frame the meanings of several levels, hoping the image remain open to interpretation depending upon the viewer’s own context.
Perception is often driven by anticipation, a curiosity for what comes next. A photograph needs to allow for this. It needs to project the moment that comes next, just as it needs to evoke in the viewer the moment that to the one that is captured. The exhibition titled “Footnotes” is at the Jehangir Art Gallery.
It closes on January 2.
