A quick glance at senior photographer Ghanshyam Savani’s works leads to immediate intrigue. His frames omit much more than they capture. Peculiarly placed subjects pique the onlooker’s curiosity, such that one feels prodded to search for more.
An academician by profession at the Navsari Agricultural University, Savani has been exploring photography as a visual art since many years and has participated in various solo and group shows. Since long, Savani has been associated with the Ahmedabad-based charitable trust Manav Pratishthan, a platform that encourages photography, and with veteran photographer Ketan Modi. He has also served as juror in some of their photography competitions.
Summers are always synonymous with a feel of leisure. When we hear the word ‘summer’, we imagine flowers in bloom and dappled light filtering through foliage. In his album called ‘Summer Snaps’, Savani captures these intricate observations of nature through his camera. His exceptional art photography skills are evident in the way that he aesthetically contrasts the bright-toned textures of minimalistic subjects with subtly-hued backgrounds. The depth, clarity, sharpness and perspective in his pictures lends this series a poetic atmosphere.
