Orlando Art – Sutra – Photography by Yatin Patel

We just got info for an Amazing photography show happening next month in Downtown Orlando.

Photographer Yatin Patel will be opening his solo show “Sutra” September 16th. Sutra is an exhibition with Large scale works from Patels journey through his hometown, Ahmedabad, India.

“What fascinates me is how, after thousands of years, the original environment and its habitants have organically evolved in time to find a delicate balance between tradition and modernism, without compromise. My work seeks to document this astonishing harmonious paradox. It is the spatial and intimate interconnection between architecture and mankind which matters to me,” – Yatin Patel

We’re pretty sure you’ve heard the word Sutra before. If you’ve never taken the time to look it up, the word “Sutra” has ancient sanskrit Indo-Aryan origins meaning “ a thread or line that holds elements together”, and Sutra perfectly describes Patels intricate and thought out series that shows the tie between the humanity, architecture, and culture of modern india.

In Sutra, Patel brings his images to life by using the HDR process to accentuate the detailed imagery. Not wanting to skimp on the details, Patel went to renowned printer Jon Cone who developed his own software to print the images, he also used special inks and paper, making this series of photos very unique.

After it’s Orlando debut, the word is Sutra will be traveling internationally in 2012. Never let it be said that good things don’t start in Orlando.

Opening September 17th: 6:30 – 10:00 pm and,
September 18th: 1:00 – 4:00 pm
