'every space is truly unique'

It so happened that an interiors store Yamini asked Indian photographer Pallon Daruwala to do some work for them. Pallon went to a place called Cannanore (South India). The images he came back with made people at Yamini sit back and think. They drew inspiration from his images and created a whole new line of products!

photoart architecture

Along with the camera, Bengaluru based Indian photographer Pallon Daruwala uses light and space as his tools. His love for the uncluttered and clean lines is evident in his work.

A leader in his own right he is dubbed as an advertising or industrial photographer. But I refuse to agree. I call him documentative photographer of architecture and interiors. In fact he has done lot of fashion photography too.

What I find enduring about his work is that his images are intimate and distant at the same time!

I simply love his interiors and architectural images.

And his architectural images are pieces of art!

I have wasted 4 days deciding which images to put and which ones too leave out. I can’t do justice to his work if I put everything together.

So here is Pallon Daruwala’s work in two posts- 1st on architecture and 2nd on interiors.

Le Corbusier creations meets a photo artist from Chandigarh

He was trained to be a graphic artist and painter instead he picked up camera. His is conceptual photography. Without delving into technicalities I call him one of the best Indian photo artists.

Diwan Manna freezes us with his black and white creations. He photographs kitchen workers who work endlessly inside hot dark four walls. 

He is from Chandigarh, a city designed by Le Corbusier. So one fine day he went to France to capture Le Corbusier creations. Here is the result:

Wanting to know design behind a design

Wanting to know what goes behind a beautiful design, the screw behind the wheel; I went to search for something about industry. I came back fascinated with these stunning industrial photographs instead. These are works of very talented Indian photographers: Rohinton Irani, Sanat Ghosh, Ian Pereira , K L Raja and Studio Neon.
