An educationist at the Navsari Agricultural University, senior photographer Ghanshyam Savani began photography as a hobbyist, developing a niche in creative nature photography with time. He is intrigued by the poetry and picturesque beauty of the seasons. In this album, he portrays monsoonal elements through the lens. Savani has served as juror in various photography competitions and shares a professional and personal bond with senior photographer Ketan Modi.
The monsoons bring water – the symbol of life – with their arrival. A newfound lushness is introduced into the tropical atmosphere, filling it with vibrancy. The moistness in the gushing winds, the petrichor that stimulates our sense of smell and the mellow clamour of clouds, bring immense joy, not only to children who love to bathe in the rains, but also to adults. Rain stirs us, making us nostalgic and poetic. In the album Monsoon Melodies, Savani narrates the joys of the season, by focusing on plants and flora as his central subjects.
