Visit photographer Valji Solanki’s solo show ‘Kaashmir’ at NID and be transported to the mountains immediately. Drop by until July 27.
Despite its troubled history marked by territorial disputes, Kashmir is still known as ‘Heaven on Earth’ for a reason. And this has been brilliantly captured by photographer Valji Solanki in his latest photography exhibition Kaashmir. The solo show opened at National Institute of Design’s Design Gallery on July 16. Its display of 35 photographs depicts serene winter scenes from the northern state.
The photographs captures the snowy and foggy mountains of Kashmir, blanketed by cotton-like snow. The collection gives a glimpse into the daily lives of the Kashmiri locals, especially the shikara walas who row their long wooden boats in the waters of Dal Lake.
Since the time Solanki joined the Photography Studio at NID in 1974, he has evolved his photography skills on ground over a four-decade-long career. The Ahmedabad-based photographer has explored many geographies through his lens, capturing significant happenings at NID and covering exhibitions like Tasar Silk Project, Design in India and Manipur Pavilion.
Solanki was initiated into photography right from the basics. His journey started by developing negatives into black-and-white and chromogenic prints. Today, he uses multi-functional DSLR cameras. As a member of the NID community, Solanki shared his love for photography with the staff and students through his solo exhibition.
The fully air-conditioned atmosphere at the gallery complements the theme of the show! And Solanki welcomes any students who want to discuss photography with him or understand his artistic process.
So grab the opportunity. Visit NID at Paldi and escape to the snow-capped Kashmir valley anytime between 11:00 AM to 07:00 PM, before the show concludes on July 27.
