Breaking Stereotypes

“Do you drink?""Of course, I just said I was a writer.” ― Stephen King.

The world is filled with stereotypes. Few try to be different, break the trend. Even fewer succeed. But what happens whens 'the  different' lasts too long?

One not so fine weekend, I was down with fever. With the spurt of dengue attacks in the city I was asked to take rest. I decided to take advantage of this and clear all the unwanted images from my laptop . It was then that a certain realization struck me. The aim of  my APAD project  (refer - http://www.snehalkanodia.com/portfolio/a-photo-a-day ) was to move out of my comfort zone, talk to my subjects and  learn from them. This manner of taking pictures however, gradually became my style.

There were 4 elements that were common in most pictures: 1) Human Interactions which led to portraits 2) Photo Orientation - Landscape 3) Photo  Location - Outdoor 4) Vivid  Colours

I then decided to then do just the opposite of what I had been doing. I spent the weekend taking a few pictures around my apartment. All devoid of the elements mentioned above. This to me was a good change.A way of detoxicating.

I asked myself then "what if my subjects cant speak, will they still be able to tell a story?" The answer I found  in patterns, leading lines and shadows.

A few pictures of this attempt I share with you below :
