Face of a country

It’s a sea of faces. Some glare, some stare, others dare you to hold their gaze longer. Shot as tight close-ups, in Gujarat, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Ladakh, these faces are India as seen through photographer Prathik Panchamia’s eyes.

At his exhibition ‘Faces from an expressive country’ in Contemplate Art Gallery, Prathik has put together his impressions of India’s landscapes, children, women and men gathered from two years of travelling the country.

Prathik’s journey with the camera began as a student of visual communications at PSG College of Arts and Science. After two years at a Chennai advertising agency and a short stint as a food and travel photographer with Mumbai’s Mid Day, he took off on freelance work projects. “Once the official assignments were done, I’d spend time with the people at every village, town and city that I was in,” says Prathik. “It’s the only way to capture the soul of a place.”

‘Faces from an expressive country’ (exhibition cum sale) is on at Contemplate Art Gallery, Avanashi Road till 6 p.m. today.
