Sanjay Nanda

Sanjay NandaSanjay Nanda is a visual designer by profession and passionate about photography. Photography helps him release his intense creative urges and to communicate what he feels and sees. His experience as a visual designer helps him see beauty in mundane things. In his images he likes to use the interplay of light, textures, and colours to create unusual and complex forms that seduce the viewer. He has the ability to extract beauty out of ordinary surroundings and convert them into visually appealing images and at the same time using concepts and techniques that are grounded in the domain of fine art. His select works are part of various private collections. You can view some of his work here:

His style could be termed as "expressive minimalism". ie interpreting the things seen by removing all the descriptive clutter, to express meaning to others. It is photography that interprets, rather than describes, what we see to others. It tells a story, going beyond conveying information for its own sake. By expressing his own metaphorical point of view about what he sees, he can communicate ideas to others, triggering emotional, intellectual, and imaginative responses.

His photography is a combination of: Abstraction, Contrast, and Human Emotions. Abstraction removes literal, descriptive clutter and hones an image down to its essence and encourages unlimited thinking. Contrast presents elements that seem to be at odds with their context and creates juxtapositions that stimulate both the emotions and the imagination. Human emotions convey the emotions, beliefs, traditions and knowledge that we understand and share as humans.
