For so many, an interest in photography develops in youth, whether through the influence of the family snapshot, a fascination with the tools and equipment, or the inherent act of noticing that is integral to the photographic act. Krishna Malhotra’s enthusiasm for photography was awakened when he was nine. His first camera was a Kodak Brownie, and at twenty-three, he finally saved enough money to buy a 35mm SLR.
Following in the tradition of master photographers, Henri Cartier-Bresson and André Kertész, Malhotra has turned his observing eye towards all that has engaged his attention. Portraits, quotidian moments, architecture, and the landscape are equal targets of his keen sense of timing and composition. India: Ebb and Flow represents a selection of Malhotra’s loving portrayals of quiet reflection and frenetic energy that live side by side in his native India.
