Robi Chakraborty-Favourites

ROBI CHAKRABORTY

What draws me the most is encounters with folks in uncontrived and spontaneous settings. I am instinctively drawn to capturing photographs which convey the strength and the resilience of the human spirit. The camera gives me an excuse to explore the world as it exists outside my everyday and familiar sphere of living..

One thing is sure. Every photograph has touched my soul and every capture has a story, as have people and places. Life unfolds itself a little by little on its own terms and at unexpected crossroads. Every life is not just one story. It is a sequence innumerable stories which blend into each other without borders.

And I am barely the storyteller.

Most great artists have an unmistakable signature style. It's developed over time, but at its core is a look or feel or tendency or sound that is innate. It's imprinted, not learned. The repeatable high craft comes with study and practice, but the essence of the vision, the point of view, the singular signature is just "there". It always emerges. The intuitive capture of design and color and content. It's magic. Witness just a handful of Robi Chakraborty's best color photographs, and you'll know for sure the next time you see one.

Each time I see Robi Chakraborty’s photography I am moved by the humanity and powerful design. They are so alive they often make me feel that I am sitting there in the middle of the moment. That ability to make people feel what the subject feels is extraordinary and the envy of all photographers. It takes an artist that has a great deal of empathy to not only to understand it but to be able to convey it to other people each time.

From deserts to mountains… from inner cities to fishing villages Robi Chakraborty's fascinating and expressive photography brings to us exotic distant lands and cultures. Each photo has a story to tell which shows of his compassion for nature and humanity. Each photo is a prayer... a devotion! Robi is an exceptional artist! The fisherman's daughter Jalpari… the song of the desert… many, many more photos are like poetry to be remembered. I wish him good luck!

Robi Chakraborty's photography brings the viewer into a different realm. His landscape photography draws the viewer in, with compositions, shadows, and light, that are aesthetically pleasing and brilliantly executed. His beautiful photos of the people of India are full of vivid colour, rich textures, and interesting angles, details, and backgrounds. He is an artist, whose portraits convey the emotions and the essence of such beautiful people. Robi makes a connection with the people in his photos, capturing their personalities, culture, lifestyles, and traditions, thru the talented use of his camera lens.

Robi is a photographer with a lot of heart. Ever since I’ve known him from the early ‘80’s, he had a camera hung around his neck, the best he could afford then! He never missed an opportunity to shoot whatever caught his quick roving eye. He has since come a long way from the stunning black and white street photos to capturing the very essence and culture of people all over the world especially in India with an amazing play of light and shadow of colours. He has travelled extensively into the heartlands of our country giving us sensitive insights into the lives of children and people, weather in villages or urban cities. Women have been a major focus where one can see into the very depths of their soul, engaged in their daily tasks.The multitude of rewards, awards and accolades he has received in plenty but he remains a simple and kind hearted soul. I wish him all the very best going forward.
