Arvind Garg bio

Brief Bio:

Originally from Punjab, India (born 1946), where he taught English for a number of years. Arvind Garg moved to Madison, Wisconsin, in 1976 to do Ph.D. in English, but soon afterwards he became deeply interested in photography which became the focus of his lifelong work. In 1985 he moved to New York City.  He has traveled and photographed widely in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Central and South America on assignment as well as for personal work. 

Arvind's images are in the permanent collections of the New York Public Library, the Brooklyn Museum, Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell University, Madison Art Center, Wisconsin, the Historical Society of Wisconsin, as well as in several corporate and individual art collections. His work has been published and exhibited in the U.S. and abroad. He is a contributing member of Corbis and Getty Images photo agencies.

Statement:

For me the urge to make photographs, first and foremost, is to discover for myself the beauty and the mystery of the visual world in which I live. The twenty-five years  I have spent photographing have been devoted to refining my vision and improving my practice of the craft that helps create a photographic print. The universe is not constant, and light, which makes "seeing" possible, is ever changing.  This makes the act of photography a continuing challenge and a never ending game. There is hardly ever a walk I take, whether in the city or country, when I don't discover something new for myself,  or something old that "looks" new.  In order to make a photograph it is important that I feel this thrill of personal "discovery."

Over the years my work has changed in subject and in style, progressively becoming "quieter" and more abstract. There is now a more direct focus on light as subject in itself, as well as an emphasis on line and form and tonal values of surfaces of the material world around us.The resulting simplicity in the images, I feel, has brought my work closer to my heart.

Starting with street photography in the late 1970s when I first moved to the United States from my native India, I have worked in portraiture and documentary photography on my way to concentrating on fine art images, both in traditional and alternative mediums (photogravure). But travel being my other major interest, throughout my career as a photographer I have made images in locations far and wide as well as always photographing in my home town of New York City.

I have done travel magazine assignments including in several locations around the world for the Sunday Travel Section of the New York Times. Besides private collections there are several permanent collections in public museums that have acquired my work, such as The New York Public Library; The Brooklyn Museum; Herbert F. Johnson Museum at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY;  Madison Museum of Contemporary Art; and the Historical Society of Wisconsin.

For the past couple of years I have focused on publishing books of my photographs. These include books of fine art and abstract images as well as books on New York, India, Japan, Egypt, Tunisia. These can be seen and/or bought at:
