India is a land of contrasts, colors, chaos and many surprises. Even though I visited only a tiny fraction of this tremendous landscape, its deep impact will never fade. It is an honor and pleasure to share my experiences on this photographic journey with others.
This body of work is a collection of images created using my iPhone during a designated iPhone photography workshop in India led by instructor Karen Devine in early 2016. During this workshop, participants were instructed and encouraged to exclusively use their iPhone cameras but also to enhance the plain images and create photo composites by using a wide range of apps designed for the smartphone photographer.
The tools used to create these images, however, should by no means distract from the incredible richness and beauty witnessed firsthand in this workshop. In fact, for this presentation, I primarily chose to use plain images with basic enhancements to certain photos, without changing the content.
Photography is more than just my hobby; I chose it because it perfectly intertwines my interests in the scientific and artistic worlds. Simplicity, human elements, shapes and patterns are consistent themes in my images. I intentionally focus on every day objects in an effort to present them in a new light, and instinctively search for the abstract in concrete and otherwise ordinary images
