Art Portfolio: The Wind & The Flutist
The softness beneath my soles slowed my journey as I wended my way along the sand dunes of Western Rajasthan. A strong wind joined the unrelenting sun, spraying the fine dust across the canvas of the landscape, as a lone flutist, completely unaware of my presence, walked through the sands of time into the wilderness.
Even to this day, I can visualize the scene unfold in slow motion before my very eyes — the sun, the wind, the sand and the lone flutist conniving with each other in a perfect display of color and harmony.
It is moments in time such as these that add untold color to my life.
About the Artist
Deepak left his professional career in 2007 to explore areas of passion that were outside the corporate world, and he found it in travel and photography. The breadth of Deepak’s photographic interests span a range of subjects, such as clouds, graffiti, temple art, ancient erotic sculpture, and the truck art of South Asia. He is also an ardent photographer of village life in India, which he primarily captures while travelling by car, his preferred mode of transport in the country.
Deepak has also begun exploring the area of composite art, which thoughtfully incorporates and combines his diverse range of photographic interests. This includes his portfolio titled “Impermanence,” which brings together images of clouds and graffiti from all over the world. He has recently added a series titled “Boundless,” which pays homage to the wondrously colourful style of the women in the towns and villages of India.
