Street by Bhavik Bhatt

Bhavik Bhatt’s faceless subjects spark curiosity. Who are these people? What are they feeling? What are their roles? In Bhavik Bhatt’s monochromatic photographs, his subjects are faceless and yet we can sense their emotions.

Bhatt left his job as a sales executive to follow his love for capturing images, practising professional photography in Ahmedabad under the tutelage of senior photographer Ketan Modi since the past eight years. Hailing from the historic city of Junagadh, Bhatt is a professional photographer involved in fashion and wedding photography. But when he saw the masterworks of American photographer Steve Mccurry and French lensman Henri Cartier-Bresson, he developed an interest towards monochromatic street photography. His album Street is an artistic manifestation of his photographic aesthetics.

Not seeing faces in the series, the viewer finds himself curious to know more about the subjects’ actual characteristics. It is the vocation and activity of the subjects that expresses these. For the album Street, Bhatt chose to shoot in toneless mode, which heightens the drama of the photographs. The pictures narrate struggle, freedom, satiation or happiness, all through the vocation of the subject. The street is where real-life scenarios play out, scenarios in which most of us are born to earn our silver spoon by ourselves. The album has been shot in various lanes of Ahmedabad city.
