Ranjan Ramchandani is an
turned Professional Photographer" focusing on landscapes and wildlife. Having had a
natural flair for photography since childhood, he studied it in school as
a part of his ECA, followed by self-learning over the last decade.
Practice makes perfect. More recently Ranjan has been able to hone his
skills further by going for a number of photography expeditions, as well
as through mentoring and workshops by world-renowned photographers.
He is a
graduate from the New York Institute Of Photography.
To Ranjan photography is an art.. a true medium of self-expression. After
his photography expeditions to Ladakh in 2008 and 2009, he was inspired by
it's stark beauty and living heritage to turn this hobby into something
more… In September 2010, he released a coffee table book on the region,
“Swades: Ladakh - The Land Of Splendour”.
This was followed by a lot of time on Indian roads, driving across state
borders, photographing the unique graffiti on the back of trucks, only
found in India! The culmination was an exhibition by Arushi Art, a premier
art gallery in New Delhi, India, in February 2011, titled “Blow Horn”,
with great reception by the local media, as a first of it’s kind.
He then chanced upon Banaras on the recommendation of a friend, and there
was no looking back. Mesmerized by the warmth and culture of the city and
its people, Ranjan went back repeatedly. Three such visits were during Dev
Diwali, a festival of lights in tribute to the river Ganges by the people
of Banaras. This resulted in 2 exhibitions in Singapore – a group show at
the American Club, and a solo exhibition by Gallery Krisstel Martin, again
receiving great local media reception.
Ranjan was also showcased in ‘Harvest 2011’, an exhibition of Indian
contemporary art, in New Delhi, India. This was the 12th year of the
Harvest catalogue, an annual project of Arushi Art to project Indian art
in different cities in India as well as overseas.
Apart from Landscapes he is now concentrating on wildlife photography with
a book in the works.
