Maverick, iconoclast, photographer, writer, traveler, wanderer.

I am deeply influenced by photography. And my understanding of photography is framed by the confines of my perception. In the words of Ansel Adams, “Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communication, offers an infinite variety of perceptions, interpretations and executions”. Here is mine.

But of course, all of us have individual perspectives and perceptions shaped by the multitude of unique permutations of influences that we experience in life. Our desire for being objective remains incomplete. Is there a way out of this cul-de-sac? I believe there is none, and neither should there be. The real truth is that your perspective is real in some ways, just as mine is in others. They are both true, and they are both limited in their ability to capture and convey that truth.

In the continuum of time and space, intermediate finite moments shape our being and our perception, our mental prisms. After passing through our own prisms of perception, each refraction of reality contains only some pure essence of the light, only an incomplete part. So we will always experience some aspect of reality, of the truth, but only from our perspectives. None will see the whole, complete light. These are my musings from my own refraction.
