THE CONTRADICTIONS OF BEING

Excerpt from review by Himali Singh Soin (Foreword for the exhibition catalogue)

Unni’s photographs are wet, succulent, plump, sensual:  you can consume them as a feast, or follow them with naked feet till they turn around and look you in the eye. The innate symbiosis of life and things of the universe, and the willingness with which we desire to accept these dualities—the multiple in the singular, the religious in the concrete, the sky in the earth—make Unni’s lens a comfortable, homely and familiar one. The bridge of these contradictions is love, of course, the passionate unity of the elemental. Nature and architecture, the vertical and the horizontal, the colorful and the colorless, the mcirocosmos and the macrocosmos, the process and the product, rationality and emotion corrugate, correspond, contemplate. In any game of two is a poem, a construction of a magically real landscape.
