A self-taught photographer and film-maker, I have always strived to celebrate both the moving and the still image in my visual expressions. Born in Kenya and raised in India, I am also influenced and inspired by cross-cultural artistic endeavors. My film-making activities have included four short films (and some commissioned films) made for Filmaka.com. My photography has featured in promotional material for the Swiss Arts Council's India office. Since 2010, I have won over 30 honors at the International Photography Awards (IPA), the Prix de la Photographie Paris Awards (PX3) and the Photography Masters Cup (Color Awards). www.nyaybhushan.com
T3 To The Future -
Despite its stereo-typical image of a land of exotica (thanks largely to a mostly patronizing western viewpoint), there is a new rising India that is trying to find its unique focus and visual identity in the global village. Modern architectural wonders are usually the shining examples of any country's new-found prosperity as seen with New Delhi's recently opened Indira Gandhi International Airport - Terminal 3.
Just before its official opening, I had the chance to photograph T3 as a vast empty space devoid of people in a country with a population of over a billion. T3 is the world’s eighth largest passenger terminal spread across 5.4 million square feet with a capacity to handle 34 million passengers annually.
The experience of visually capturing a slice of this vastness made me feel like a solitary traveler exploring my own path and identity in the universe.
As I photographed some workmen pushing potted plants across a seemingly never-ending carpeted walkway to add the finishing touches to their creation, I wondered, will they remain faceless or will T3 take them to the future too?
