BY Muhammed shaikh
Muhammed, a visual artist and photographer who plays with light to portrait daily life in Mumbai. Some of these have been shot at Priyadarshani park, Dharavi, Suruchi beach, Juhu beach, Dadar chowpaty, Versova beach, Grant road and Girgaon beach.
When asked about his inspirations, Muhammed says, “ I like the contrast between two people where one who is a old man praying namaz under the light and another guy watching mobile phone in darkness ( Image one) . I quite like the loneliness feeling in some images. I am completely obsessed with the Japanese provoke generation photographers and Andrew S Gray who is best known for his abstract pictures”. He further adds that he likes to click pictures of children playing and horses and the blue colour adds a dimension to his images.
The artist studied photography in Mumbai and says that he learnt various abstract techniques like using foreground and background to help each other in one frame, and using multiple layers to create unique images.

From the arches to the domes and the minarets, this series explores forms, textures and colours of the Adroon Shehr (Inner City) as Old Lahore is now called. A visit to the recently restored Dilli Darwaza (Delhi Gate, one of the six surviving gates into the old city out of the original thirteen) takes you through some of the most magnificent gems of Lahore: The Shahi Hammam with its minimally painted domes, the dingy and narrow muhallas, The bustle of the Kashmiri bazaar, the quiet charm of the Sunehri Masjid and the majestic Masjid Wazir Khan with its hand painted frescos.

It was time to fill my cup
Fill it all the way to the top
To fill it it must be emptied first
Trees and streams to quench my thirst
Pebbles water birds that sing
To the forest soul I must bring
Afloat in the stream
I dip my brush in the ripple
Washing away the past little by little
This March, I decided to float away to a remote farm in Kodaikanal. I needed to be with the trees. March is also when a new season in fashion unfurls. Spring Summer 2018. I experienced the landscape through the lens of hair and make up, styling, jewellery, swatches, textures and patterns. Absorbing sights and sounds like a sponge and then expressing the stories out into my book through my paint brush.

Through this series, we have tried to explore a dark side that the city of glamour holds. The history and tales that these old buildings have witnessed and have stood through times with the changing cultural landscape of Bombay is the artist's focus. Here Art deco meets imperialism and modernism. Most photos have been taken from a moving car or walking on foot from Colaba to Fort and also Bandra.
