I have made this series after two months of effort. Many pictures we have seen indoors earlier around the world in pandemic situations, but this is innovative to take pictures with such a combination of colors inside the room. In our daily life, many colors emerge inside the room and merge again, we may not notice anything. Most of the pictures in this series have been made with the help of colored lights. The lights are made entirely of domestic materials.
By lighting the torch of the mobile, then wrapping it in colored plastics – in this way different colors have emerged. No external lighting or material was used here. The creation of colorful shadows with colored lights in low light has created a visual aesthetic. Every day we create different colors and lights inside the house, my main purpose was to capture them and I have gathered all of them in this series. In the current pandemic situation, I think it is very important to highlight our black and white lifestyle in a colorful way.
About Dipanjan Chakraborty
I am Dipanjan Chakrborty. I am Kolkata based street and documentary photographer. I have been documenting Kolkata for the last few years. As a photographer, my perspective remains to explore street photography as a key to reach the common people and their lives. I love to tell stories through my lens.
Every frame tells a story but when we create a story within a frame, it makes the frame more beautiful. After being a street and documentary photographer my course of life has entirely changed. I have started photography from my childhood. But I have had a craze for photography since my childhood, whenever I could get a mobile or camera from anyone I would always try to capture my surrounding people and their daily life.
I love to see photos daily, in social media I used to watch various kinds of pictures from different countries and different photographers that helped me to increase my knowledge. When I make a plan to go out for a shoot at first I used to make research on that particular subject or project on which I am going to do my work, then I used to make a plan on that particular place and time when my shoot takes place, because time is more important in street photography. But sometimes when I go out with my equipment I capture various candid moments on the street I am using a Sony A6000 mirrorless camera right now. I have used a DSLR earlier but mirrorless is giving me such a great output, especially in low light mirrorless is a revolution.
