When a powerful capture gets you to pause and reflect!
‘Story of a Pause’ is the title of the exhibition by photographer Harsh Kamat. It is a collection of 50 curated works that will be on display at Kala Academy from October 12 to 16, 2018
You know that moment, when you see something you really like and it has such a profound effect on you that you find yourself stopping whatever you are doing to just look at this object? Young and upcoming photographer Harsh Kamat is trying to focus on these kinds of moments through his latest exhibition – Story of a Pause.
He delves on the definition of the word pause: a noun that means a temporary stop in action or speech; a verb that means to interrupt action or speech briefly, halt, wait. “Life is an ever-evolving, vibrant medium and the world is in a permanent state of flux. People, sights, thoughts and seasons flash by, fading into one another day in and day out. Memories play out like a broken film reel. While most recollections will eventually grow hazy, a handful of moments shall continue to remain fresh with every detail etched in our very being, ready to be summoned and relived at will,” says Harsh, who is based in Goa and Mumbai. ‘Story of a Pause’ is an exclusive collection of 50 pauses, each hand-picked to tell its story at Harsh’s debut solo exhibition. “That is the power of a serene pause; a moment lingered on for just a moment longer and preserved forever.A pause slows down time and magnifies the heart-breaking beauty of the world. In doing so, it becomes a story which demands to be told,” adds Harsh, whose works have already generated a lot of curiosity and interest across social media platforms. Harsh has displayed his photographs at various exhibitions and has had his woks published in several reputed national and international magazines and newspapers. He also visits various institutions as an expert faculty and is very active as a public speaker across various platforms. His work reflects his sheer love for life and every day is a new start for exploring a fresh ways to capture all that the world has to offer. Having established his stronghold in wedding photography, Harsh now specialises in advertising photography. Born in a home where music, art, literature and theatre are worshipped, Harsh first fell in love with photography at the age of 17 in the wilderness of Goa.
