Inspired by her husband’s passion for photography, Himadri Patel’s curiosity for holding a camera found its way to reality. Over time she has developed an eye towards the subjects and started covering people and their life in a fresh perspective. Her love towards street photography grew within two months while studying the aesthetics of photography with Ketan Modi at Navgujarat College. Previously she stole a few shots from her husband’s camera, and courageously one day she bought a Canon 1300d and started experimenting with visuals.
The story covered in ‘The Potter Heads of Ahmedabad’ album narrates us a different facet of Ahmedabad. It shows the milieu of Kumbharvas (Potter’s Colony) located in the heart of the city Makarba. Since pottery has been a traditional art of India, most of the artisans and potters still use the traditional methods and materials to produce earthenware, which gives a picturesque shot from every angle. The photographer here has played with emotions and expressions of people, while they perform their mundane activities. In this time of scorching summer, the earthern vessels that store the water for us, assume greater importance.
