Australian artist Terry Burrows has captured different facets of the ghats of Banaras and anonymous individuals in his camera. These pictures will now be mounted at a six-day solo exhibition at Lalit Kala Akademi here beginning this Sunday.
The exhibition will have 28 double images. In all, there will be 56 colour pictures.
For this 58-year-old artist, observing the ghats teeming with people meditating, squatting, sitting along the steps or looking at the river and watching children play the gentleman’s game was an enjoyable experience. According to Terry, as the photographs of the subjects are all taken from behind, they are an intriguing form of anonymous portraiture. “Since the images are from the back, we have not intruded into the privacy of the people featured in this exhibition.”
