‘Between Darkness and Light’ is a set of Hyderabad-based Amita Talwar’s pictures, geared toward elevating funds for these affected by the pandemic
When the second wave of COVID-19 was wreaking havoc, many desperately regarded for mild on the finish of the tunnel. Taking a cue from this, Hyderabad-based photographer Amita Talwar and curator Lina Vincent titled the previous’s virtual fundraiser exhibition ‘Between Darkness and Light’. In her curatorial notice, Lina states that mild and darkish co-exist like yin and yang.
Presented by Goethe-Zentrum Hyderabad and on view at https://tinyurl.com/betweendarknessandlight until July 9, 2021, the exhibition is elevating funds for Salaam Baalak Trust and Children’s Hope India.
‘Between Darkness and Light’ provides a glimpse into Amita’s oeuvre, for those that aren’t conversant in her work. In the artwork and images circles of Hyderabad, Amita is recognised for documenting Nature, temples, structure and cityscapes.
The virtual exhibition begins with monochrome pictures earlier than shifting on to a burst of colors. Light works its method by way of tree branches mirrored in tranquil waters, a lone tree is framed in opposition to a deep blue sky and there are sweeping expanses of water, land and sky.
In the structure part, the play of sunshine is captured by way of shadows of partitions that fall on the cobbled streets of Europe, or by way of home windows and doorways.
Angkor Wat throughout sundown is among the many many hanging pictures on show and Amita says disarmingly, “I was at the right time at the right place. Angkor Wat is always milling with people and it is tough to get the kind of images you want inside. I liked the quietness that I witnessed outside the structure.”
Viewers shopping the virtual exhibition can place orders for prints in two dimensions — 16” X 24” (₹10,0000) and 20” X 30” (₹14000).
Does the avid traveller miss lengthy journeys and discoveries? “On the contrary, the pandemic has been a time of tremendous learning. My days are packed with online courses. I’ve been using this time to up-skill and learn new art forms and software.”
