Blushing Hues of Spring

People change like the weather, but the change in weather is always beautiful, unlike people. In this album ‘Blushing Hues of Spring’ photographer Priti Bhatt, who hails from the heritage city of Ahmedabad, explains us the different moods in nature, in time and the life around us. Her vision of capturing folage in its most organic form gives her viewers an opportunity to connect with the natural atmosphere in all these urbanisations. Her zeal of capturing the vibrancy of nature in its utmost simplicity is what makes here clicks unique as well as picturesque.

A management professional, who is also a serious hobbyist, Priti considers photography as an opportunity to find her inner self. She was always inclined towards capturing the best moments of life, her family and friends, during her early days but her vision towards photography as an art upgraded after meeting veteran photographers and mentor Ketan Modi and Vivek Desai. From there she began capturing unique elements that roam around us while travelling. This album consists pictures that were clicked in the time frame of 3 years at various places of Gujarat, especially Ahmedabad and The Dangs.

અમે તો સૂરજના છડીદાર

અમે તો પ્રભાતના પોકાર!                                              …અમે
