> DESCRIPTION

What connects photographs of these two minds? In one word: texture. In the black and white photographs taken by Shri B.K.Birla, you can see a gentle, personal and nuanced take on moments that we blink and miss. Aryaman Vikram Birla takes a more wide angle sweep. His mountains, waterfalls, sheep, valleys, high-rises, fire: all are steeped in a sense of angularity. A tilt. A drift. There are some deftly carved out angles hidden which make arcs, parabolas and random curved lines.

The photographs that we share with you are not just constructed moments but an instinctive personal take on the world around us. So as you deconstructed the colour in the black-and white frames and the black-and-white in the colours stills…the pictures talk.
