But why is Prashant fascinated with black and white photography? “We see the world in colour, so rendition of the world in grayscale makes us pause and look closely, allows us to see the subject and its context more directly and lets us connect more easily. As Ted Grant said rightly ‘When you photograph people in colour, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!’”

“I am not a trained photographer. Photography is my hobby. I am a trained visualiser/art director. My job is to come up with visual stories. All my advertising work reflects what I see around me; as an artist you are observing people and their diversity, traditions, culture, their emotions like affection, happiness, love, greed, lust, joy, fear, etc. The only way to make sense out of this is to plunge into it, move with it, enjoy and find connection in the moment. Also, when you are photographing, you are capturing your own perception of the duration of events in time. What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, and they give you the ability to revisit and share the experience with others with their sense of perception,” says Prashant.

Join us in congratulating to Devendra and Family for receiving the State Award for Excellence for their Madhubani paintings! This award is conveyed by the Government of Bihar for year 2012-2013. “I was born in 1969 in Jitwarpur, Bihar – an eastern state in India.
My mother, who is a state award winner in Madhubani, the painting style that I use, was my mentor. Under her supervision and guidance I have emerged as an artist capable of creating these paintings. “In this school of art we do not make preliminary sketches, nor is our work planned.
We simply pick up our brushes and create. A vivid and creative imagination is essential in this style of art, for while motifs may be similar, no two paintings will ever be found to be the same.” Mithila, (in Bihar) is a scholastic and cultural center in India that traces its lineage of arts from epic times.
Mithila paintings – alternately called Madhubani paintings – are a folk tradition kept alive by women in northern Bihar. They depict events from epic, mythology and traditional designs on their floors and walls of their houses using crushed wet rice and natural colors.
From this age old tradition stemmed the practice of drawing Mithila paintings on a canvas of hand-made paper or pure mulberry silk fabric using natural colors and fabric dyes. Brushes, sharpened reeds and pen nibs are used.
