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.
Please donot use or copy these images without photographer’s written permission.

From India. With love.
These are carved wooden jharokhas (windows).
In past you could see these jharokhas in lot of Indian homes, in villages, in palaces, everywhere. Now they are mostly used inside the house as wooden frame or just as decor pieces.
Architects: @ The Centre for Vernacular Architecture
My husband dreams of a mud and brick geometrical home in a far-away village by the pond. I think I am in his dreamland.
These brick , mud, random rubble and laterite stone oppulant spaces are created by The Centre for Vernacular Architecture. The centre is a non-profit organisation and a co-operative of building crafts persons.
The centre creates spaces that are cost effective, ecologically sensible and culturally relevant.
Go on to amazing journey of each space which offers surprises like water-body co-existence, wall mural, spaces created in brick walls for light, blue oxide bathroom, water tap and attangudi cement tiles.
