Photography is the art, science, and practice of creating pictures by recording "Radiation" on a radiation-sensitive medium………………….
Here comes Ara Alexander "a little woman prodigy ‘’ who had the passion to capture images @ the tender age of 15.
She picked up her first lesson on basic photography from her ‘Guru ‘ Pesi Dubash .
Gradually she acquired the ‘eye’ to compose images on various subjects n objects around her with her debut Cannon 1000.. a gift to her by Sr Alexander on the encouragement from Pesi Dubash .
Ara’s initial pleasure n joy knew no bounds when she felt the heavy duty ‘Canon 1000’ a 1 kg volt machine in her tender palms when she graduated from clicking pictures by common cameras. The whole ‘feel’ of the slick ‘killer camera’ elevated her sights equivalent to a professional photographer. From a mere hobby her passion in photography catapulted her to become a professional herself now @ the age of 21 only!
Ara currently uses a canon 600D & a series of lenses.
On her own words forms her diary …………….
“We live in a world obsessed with image. What we look like, what our clothes look like – I like to counter this obsession with delicate ‘clicking’ which looks natural. We all make assumptions based on the external visual aspects of what surrounds us – I like to challenge this automatic way that we react to just physical appearing by highlighting the often surprising inner beauty.”
Her work is totally unconventional, simple and clean – and very unique. ‘Being natural’ ‘is her motto. I prefer clean photography with minimum photoshopping , no flash , no edit , and preferably transforming the images to Black n White .
And that is a cool niche to have.
She is now in a process to prepare innumerable images on nature, street photography, common people and their emotions, landscapes, fashion, Live musical events, Fashion n Glamour and is now also filtering to have her lenses ‘arrowed’ to Indian Film Industry too .
Later @ the end 0f 2011 she is planning to put up her solo exhibition of her work based on Indian panorama.
On her next sojourn she will be encompassing the vast and exotic world in ‘Wild Life’ At present she is contributing ‘Ara Alexander ‘ copyright photographs in various magazines, twitter, flicker n periodicals like Global Movie ,Sailor Today, Harpers Bazaar india & Mid Day.
She firmly believes in ‘competing’ with herself.
She is inspired by photographer Roohshad Garda's work.
Amongst her favorite Indian photographers she fancies the work of Roohshad Garda, Prabhuda Dasgupta , Sheena Sippy .
One can view her extensive work in a short span of time in Face Book ‘Ara Alexander Photography’ –
Ara Alexander is one of the very few and young photographers who will redefine “woman in Power’ in the Indian Photography horizon in a very short time to strike … ……….
